Thatís the difference between MotoGP & F1. The overtaking and racing in MotoGP is far more thrilling & enjoying comparable to F1 nowadays. Frankly speaking, I almost fall asleep watching most F1 race nowadays.
For me the ratios of controllable driving power/factor for each motoracing that measure the excitement in racing. Last time the driving power in F1 is by far beyond human control and thatís make only best driver lead through the pack. The guts to push beyond the driving limit that measure the Champ.
Stop to limit the F1 engine power or throw away the aerodynamic if we do really want to see such comeback of thrill in F1. What is that if it really you could flat out the paddle in most of the corners!!! (should I say what the difference now between a Hotwheel toy car racing). Thatís overtaking only happen/possible on hairpin corner nowadays mostly. Almost impossible to see overtaking in parabolic corner nowadays which indeed more thrilling for me. Given more drive power beyond aerodynamic grip, it will be a measure of skill & guts to go beyond the cornering & overtaking limit.
The un-durable new Pirelli tyres has made things worse for me. Why should driver concentrate more of taking care of the tyres instead of racing & overtaking madly on track. Do you favor more ďhonorable pitlaneĒ overtaking instead of on track itself? Mostly we see driver tend to pullback for the sake of ďtyre preservationĒ instead of keep pushing for overtaking.
Again comeback to MotoGP, thatís how only the best rider manage to really push in the corner, to overtake or even comeback from behind to win. And thatís really what makes such great rider Rossi, Lorenzo & Stoner with their superb riding & overtaking.
If anyhow safety would be the question, I guess we have enough precaution nowadays not to start worrying about such driving power. Not too pity that MotoGP rider has nothing to compare to F1 carbon fibre monocoque but still manage to push for the thrill.
So much of off-track tactics nowadays has stolen all the racing thrill nowadays. Forgot all the sportsmanlike & tactics behind but in the end we still hail Ayrton Senna as the legend.
Would the driving skill ever matter nowadays, thatís why I doubt we would ever found the next ultimate driver ever in F1. Would you suggest any current champs as the next legend in F1 or so to said racing?
P/S: Not to be bias indeed I did miss F1 thrills during Schumacher & Hakinnen era with such racing thrill and no I did fanatic in MotoGP more compare to F1 (Iím fanatic in anything with speed instead).
