I'm not talking about the dominance of Red Bull Racing or Sebastian Vettel. The history of Formula 1 was full of dominant performances. What kind of bothers me is the lack of emotion and passion for Formula 1. The thing that had you on the edge of the seat, like a build up to a battle, the art of overtaking has become a random apperance. There is no over-taking, theres overbuttoning in a way. Championship points are like rain falling on everybody, instead of a hard fought reason for celebration. Its just less emotion all around. Theres less drifts, less tire smoke, less of the spectacular engine blow ups, less top speed, less great sound, less of a full of emotion car like a powerful animal. But much more saving tires, more strategy type driving, smaller car. Remember when there used to be almost no penalties. Drivers duke it out nobody interfers in the race, just the natural way the race develops. Has F1 lost alot of character which made it great? The "awesomeness" of it. Awesome things in sport are spectacular things. F1 appears to be less spectacular compared to the past on alot of 'details' and major changes like the lousy push to pass button integration of DRS, which I feel is the major breaker of F1 together with tires that do not allow to see spectacular driving as well as it could.
Imagine putting the current roster of Formula 1 drivers, into races with cars of 2007, 2003, 2001, 1997 or 1991. Even 2010, a more recent example would be better. Is this just the way things are heading and the end vision is a F-Zero type of video game apperance of F1. Where are the super fat tires, the sparks, the blow ups, the beautiful action and rawness.
