Ahh an opposing thread always good for balance I am going to have to think about this one but off the bat I'm going to say Max Mosely the same as you, but I will definitely come up with something better..

Edit

Oops I forgot to say I don't miss Flavio Briatore.

Hmmm, This isn't as easy as I first thought.

Ones that came to mind quickly are:

The Ferrari/Todt/Schumacher etc years, Grooved Tyres, Ugly aero bits like shark fins, Eddie Irvine.

This is purely from a personal point of view, the one thing I always though F1 could do without, above all other things, more than anything else in the world and now it has gone I just hope it never, ever, ever, ever returns to bring back my nightmares - Flabio B (evil, greasy, slimy, horrible, sweaty, scum ball of a man, and yes I did mean to type the name that way).

All views represented in this post are mine and mine alone, though may also come from others I know who have had the displeasure of the man...

The days when Bridgestone specifically tailor made their tyres to suit Ferrari and the other Bridgestone runners got tyres which were half as good

I dont understand the people that say they miss the danger.
I want to watch racing, I don't want to watch people die.

I don't miss the terrible scenes of drivers being killed.

No one wants that Greenlantern101.

But the guys that were prepared to race with the possibility of death hanging over their head were special. They brought elan and, oddly, a love of life to the sport. If you like, they pushed the boundaries every time they got in their car, but sometimes lost.

Grooved tyres they were just wrong.

The one lap qualifying shoot out, especially the part where the winner of the last race had to go out first that was very very wrong.

Starting on your qualifying fuel again very wrong...

Oh and those dumbo ears the the Honda once sported..:sick:
