Well, this is F1. People work in f1 designing the cars to be as fast as posible within the regulations. F1 could use spec chassis to lower the cost, it could go all electric to be more green, it could even thorow in some pools so that fans can vote who gets some advantage, but it wouldnt be F1 then would it? I can understand safety spec parts like HALO and side crash structure, but spec front and rear wings? No thanks.
As for better racing, humans have this incredible abilitie called selective memory. We memorise all the good stuff that happen and forget the bad stuff. During most of the history of F1 there was a dominant team. In fact, teams were newer as close toggether as they are now, this is what is preventing overtakings close competition. If the slowest car is 3s slower then the fastest, the overtaking would be difficoult. In 86 british GP you would be 9th with 3s slower car on 1:06s lap (so 9th would be easier to overtake back then, than 20th is today on pace alone). back then all you had from F1 was qualifying and race, and you were happy to wach it even if it was boring. Now in the era of internet if the race is not exciting you say meh this was more borring then Teds notebook.

About filmig day, maybe Williams allready had one we just dont know about it.

PS, I think FE car looks cool.

Agreed. Completely. We all talk about "golden days of Senna, Nige, Prost" but were those golden days really that interesting? Senna and Prost in McLaren owning everybody with ease? FW14B with Nige and later Prost winning easily? 94-97 were a bit closer between cheating Benetton (later reborn Ferrari) and Willams. 98-99 McLaren dominating. Afterwards was Ferrari era with Schumacher fun? Redbull winning 4 times in a row?

I'm under impression that most people complaining about boring races are exSchumacher fans. Those lot can't find any decent succesor to a German (their rationale: Hamilton is spoiled brat and also replaced poor unfairly treated Schumi, Vettel is ex "enemy", Rosberg was barbiegirl, Kimi is drunkard, Bottas is borefest, Ricciardo still hasn't won shite, Max is maybe potential succesor if he wins 2-3 championships in next 5 years...) So F1 is not at any interest at all to them. No one to cheer for and "who cares" about places lower than 4-5th.

Remember when Schumi announced retirement? Same s**te. But after the comeback F1 instantly became very interesting again to those lot. But only for half a season, hahaha.

I believe the same will happen to much hyped motoGP when Rossi will retire. Most of his masses of fans won't switch to Marquez due to their past and every other rider is "unspectacular".
