Formula1 now sucks. Pit stops and strategy. The pilot counts less than 50%. Agreed that Michael Schumacher is good.
But remember Prost, Mansell and Senna together? That time will never come back... Pure adrenaline it was...
Not to mention that the F1 federation (Bernie Ecclestone in primis
) year after year change the rules for the worst, in order to make things harder for the best team out there (Ferrari).
And besides, it's almost automatic: the higher the technology, the lower the role of the pilot.
