So what is important? That we don't know about the inner workings of F1 or that we might find out and discuss issues that might change our view of the sport? Maybe Michael just talks because he wants different tires. But what if he is right?
Just a thought on this - it probably belongs on the other thread but I'm here now - back in the olden days drivers used to have to manage their tyres. They could feel the changing grip, use their experience, and knew when to push. Thats fine. Michaels victory in 1992 has been dismissed on this thread as 'tyre related' but the trick is he looked at his rivals tyres and used that information when deciding when to pit.
But now the cars are covered in sensors, and there are teams of mathematicians at computers working out what lap times the drivers should be doing, and then telling them what sector times to do and in some cases even how to drive through the corners to achieve those times.
Isn't that fundamentally different? To me it feels more and more like the drivers are just playing out some computer simulation of a race.
