DOF_power said:Last time I've got the numbers (` Monza) there was an average of 25% less passes per car/driver compared to last year. Meaning a terrible decline, and all time low for GP racing.
DOF_power said:Numbers please. It's not a complete list.

DOF_power said:This would be unthinkable today, but back then the same cars or equivalent cars could pass each other.
Pass whom? Where? What the...? Have you been drinking?DOF_power said:I'm sick of excuses and "they are closer" speeches; Hamilton was 2 seconds per lap faster BTW and still couldn't pass.
DOF_power said:By Brazil there were 271 lost positions for HRT/ Lotus/ Virgin combined, but then adding they position gained (on each other no doubt) the number grows to 315.
That's a huge number, 315 passes that have to be discounted from total passes in 2010 without counting Abu Dhabi.
DOF_power said:and it wasn't because of 4-6 seconds gaps or the 104% nonsense
DOF_power said:Point this, in 1950 at the first WC GP Fangio and Farina passed each other for nearly 2h despite driving with the same car, till Fangio had to retire.
Hawthorne and Fangio passed an re-passed each other at Rheims for over 3 hours.
There were 25 to 41 on track lead changes alone at Monza in the 60s, and it wasn't because of 4-6 seconds gaps or the 104% nonsense.
