    Some people like refueling and some don't. Personally, I like the strategy of starting light and bolting away at the start, hoping to refuel later. I have often thought that Formula 1 could easily allow refueling but only if it's done like NASCAR with one guy and an FIA approved jug (remember that my max 4 mechanics over the wall rule still applies)

    marksawatsky I like the idea that someone in the midfield can fuel heavy and try to keep the right pace whilst being economic enough in order to jump the guys in front.

    What was said earlier though is true - in F1 (unlike NASCAR) they all play safe and do the same strategy as everyone else. It's a by product of having hardly any privateers teams. None of the of the big names want to risk their rep. Hence my rule around FIA produced car and drafted engines in order to bring more privateers into the sport!

    Hmmm, pretty much everything has been said, but I'd change the blue flag rules to be more like sportscars, that would add skill to negotiating traffic.

    The flip side is 'B' teams weaving about holding up rivals to the 'A' team, but that's a fairly easy one to fix, deviate from the normal line in a manner that impedes a lapping car and you get black flagged.

    I always found it quite entertaining when teams got it wrong and cars ran out of fuel, however the downside of that were the pit lane fuelling incidents, not at all entertaining.
    The new look grid line up will make a difference pf course. I'm talking about the introduction of grid boys, of course.

    I’d reinstate grid girls. :)
