In race conditions, the cars look castrated creatures - essentially like upgraded Champ Cars from the mid-90's. They are just trying to preserve the tyres because they're worn quicker on high fuel. As such it means that the teams spend gazillions to develop the most awesome cars on the planet only for them to race at essentially walking speed.
I'd like to have refuelling back and playing the part with sensitive tyres, KERS and DRS to create races where drivers are really willing to push for 190 miles which would entertain viewers all around. I'd rather watch cars being driven closer to the limit while at the same time having to conserve tyres and thinking about how many stops they'd need.
Bring it back I say. I really miss those awesome fuel mileage duels when cars couldn't overtake. (Schumacher vs Alonso at Imola 2006, Räikkönen vs Alonso Silverstone 2007) Imagine them when cars CAN overtake these days?
