This is exactly what is wrong with today's F1. The cars have outgrown all the tracks. By the look of it the job of today's designer is not to optimize your car but how to create dirty air behind your car so that no body can come close enough to pull an overtaking maneuver. Its so difficult to create a tow effect and overtake even in tracks like Spa / Monza that F1 would soon complete its metamorphosis to a strategy sport as compared to racing sport.

Am sure if given an opportunity I would love to see something like this



or may be this



than chewing my nails waiting to see which pit crew is made out of steel so that they turn around the car 1 second faster than rivals.

Mika could overtake Schumi only because of a car in between both else Michael never allowed Mika to overtake no matter how hard he tried. No Wonder Michael wasnt popular in F1 circuit becuase of his these antics.
