I fully respect that point of view obviously, and I even agree about the sound, I also miss V10 soundrjsa wrote:My point is: as a consumer of F1, I don't care for the damage the hybrids did to the show. I'll never be back to a race track while this formula endures.
An active paying customer, with more than a couple rounds at Premium Paddock Clubs and a couple dozen GPs attended since I was 8, 40 years ago.
Do not count on my patronage. Zit. Nada.
That's my opinion about it and it's final. And like this I cease to be active in F1.
If I'm with a vanishing minority or a vanishing majority we will find out soon enough.
But to me PU development is even more important than sound, and to me using 7 years old PUs on F1 as they were doing in 2013 was an abomination. Even when I don´t understand most of what I read/hear I enjoy the technical part of F1 as much as the racing itself, and I actually spend a lot more time on that than the 2h each 15 days wich takes the racing. So to me it´s great F1 PUs are again a piece of art under constant development, manufacturers fight is as interesting as the team fight or even drivers fight.
That´s the reason it drives me nuts when I read someone claiming F1 fans don´t like this PU era and they/we would be happier with those old V10s. Well, I´m a F1 fan and I don´t want that. And I´m not alone here so I don´t like when people do such claims, like if they were representing the full F1 fanbase.
A clasic misunderstanding, nothing serious obviously, sorry if I was too harsh
