Some points for this thread:

.Unfortunately all lower or feeder series became one make after Ecclestone introduction of F3000 (1985) with Lola. Later Renault followed when bringing in the first one make FR2.0 built by Tatuus. The rest is recent history. In principle the idea could be good to let costs stay low in reality exactly as it happens with food the multiplication of passages between manufacturer and teams lets costs stay even higher than in a multi manufacturer scenario. The only the actual situation created a clear path for drivers to TRY and reach F1.
. FIA is imposing F1 safety standards step by step to all single seater: this is correct on one side seeing the recent unfortunate accident but IMO it is on one side excessive since the speeds are clearly lower; and in second line the system of building heavier and heavier cars is not the way to go since they carry bigger and bigger energies able to brake down barriers and other cars. But this remains just my opinion.
.About fun in wathing F2 what should be considered is that we speak about short races and one of them is without pit stop what happens in Qualifying practice is naturally replicated in the race therefore less fights. In the end if one goes lower in the path i.e. to F4 where there is no downforce and tyres with no management needs you see more duels and classifications changes going to F1 you get similar to F1...
.Actual car is keeping a lot of the previous components, there was a change in gearbox casing an obviously chassis and aero to become actual, the weird wing was done to make DRS more powerful: let's see if the show improves...
