I think this touches on a lot of the discussions we have had on CTA this season with regard to the prescritpions handed down from the FIA regarding permissible innovations. I won't repeat what I've said elswhere about the DRS, KERS, EBD, favoured by the FIA (we've done those to death really) but I do find it interesting that when Mclaren came up with the F Duct it did at least help them catch up to some extent with Brawn and their double diffuser. It didn't solve the "runaway team" issue but that situation is an example of how, perhaps, a liberalisation of the technical rules could help to make life more interesting.
There is a constant tension at work and I agree with Axle that it needs to be addressed, however, I'm a tech head so I have to disagree with regard to the idea of simplifying the technology. This may seem like a contradiction but the joy of F1 in the 1960's and 70's in particular, was as much about the differences between the cars as it was about the ways in which they were driven. For me the familiar addage "variety is the spice of life" sums up what is bugging me about F1 right now.
One final thought on this subject ... I would dearly love the secrecy in F1 to be somewhat less. In those "good 'ol days" that I alluded to, the punter could get a look under the bonnet. Think about those great engine shots you get in old photo's in Motorsport magazine! These days you might get to see shots and footage of an F1 engine sitting on a bench with just the header pipes but then again, as they're all to one prescription, they all look the same anyway. Oh, sorry, starting to ramble. I'll stop now because I'm boring myself. When the "ignore" button comes along feel free to click on it!"
