Bring back massive rear tyres!
Bring back sparks! If we can have random safety cars, flappy wings and dubious mid-season rule changes to “improve the show”, let’s have skid plates too.
Get rid of the T-shaped camera thing on top, and make helmet cameras compulsory. If you haven’t seen them yet, check out Luiz Razia’s Lotus video in Moscow last week, or Alonso testing a Ferrari, I think at Fiorano. Helmet cams give an amazing impression of speed and the battering a driver takes. Although Razia’s camera was a bit of a Heath Robinson effort!
Lose the triangular fin on the airbox, it looks awful. It’s not as if many teams have enough sponsors to use the extra space – Red Bull and Ferrari just have their own logo up there. Great point by Quin1010 that nobody used the airbox bodywork with turbos in the 80s, so there’s hope for the future there.
Narrower front wings – to avoid bits being knocked off, as tkcom and others have said. But keep them flat, I never liked those bendy wings in ’08. And the double-decker ones were even worse!
