Time will tell.

It will be good either way. They needed to do something to make it easier to follow the other cars.

I am not so positive about this....back in the day we had groundeffect cars, these were too fast for the corners, so they developed the tires with grooves.
I predict the same here; cars will be too fast for certain corners, one big crash, everybody has thoughts and prayers, we need to slow down, yadda yadda yadda, history repeats itself.

My solution: letīs make cars with almost zero downforce, but biggest wheels money can buy, 2000 hp engines, and steel brakes. This will be fun to watch.

I agree, chasing records is fast but certainly not as fun as good racing. Seems to me they prefer the current risk for a certain bit of car control.

You're not alone in wanting almost zero downforce. Been crying for that more than a decade now. I'd like to get back to the 50's-60's. relatively. Like four wheel drifting Jim Clark stuff.

If they want to be relevant they need to focus where cars matter. (If they're going to much longer) Flippy bits just aren't that.

Of course, if they did that. Each team would probably need an extra chassis or two for testing.

Haas would need maybe 5.

Pirelli, "we need to have 18" rims to be relevant"
F1 "Hubcaps, we'll add hubcaps to the 18" rims to make them even more relevant to today's performance car."
