To my mind, 2006 was not the best year for wheel-to-wheel racing in F1 – and this season so far has been even worse.
But I think F1 is better to be rid of the massive and somewhat artificial swings in performance we saw last year – such as when Toyota suddenly locked out the second row of the grid at Suzuka just because Bridgestone had brought better tyres.
Has the end of the tyre war and the use of more conservative tyres made the racing worse?
Is the rule forcing drivers to use two different compounds during the race improving the action at all, or is it just a gimmick? Leave your comments below.
