Bravely forging new frontiers in maximizing the kerb weight and minimizing the power density of a circuit racer. Perhaps it was track limits that was the truly the end of F1, the hybrid era merely a continued byproduct of that, since the cars have not been permitted to reduce lap times for two decades.

So Spa which start is in 2 hours has been suspended? No F1 anymore? :P

F1 reached human body limits 2 decades ago, some drivers got dizzy after cornering at 6G for 2 hours, so limits were imposed to prevent a catastrophe

Do not expect to improve lap times again, humans can´t go faster into a car, fullstop.

Which leaves the sport to arbitrary achievements, random hoop jumping. Conceptually, if lap times are no longer important, than of what need is aero downforce? Most viewers of LibertyTM's new global product will not be able to discern speed from the grandstands nor television screen.
