@andy92 @slr That is because from 05-06 we ad new champions. Look I have been following F1 from Hakkinen days of 97-98, yes compared to today, cars were not so competitive, WDC were decided much ahead of the last race, and WCC even before that. But the machineries, the record setting fast laps, the mind numbing sound of V10′s, the pure exhilaration of F1 was there. Those days cars, engines, drivers were tested to their limits and the tyres complied. These days it’s the opposite.
Probably that’s the reason why F1 is not boring these days, they have a level playing field.
P.s-All Current circuits hold all time lap records from laps set those years by Schumi, Montoya, Kimi etc.
