I don't like Pirelli's, does that mean I want things to be like they were in 2008? No, that's a false dichotomy. The lack of discussion from leading figures in F1 regarding the ability for the cars to follow closely is just, disappointing. The root problem for me in F1 is the difficulty in two cars with similar pace being able to run close to each other.
Currently this is "fixed" with DRS which is just a boring arbitrary speed boost that doesn't sit well, and Pirelli's, which actually accentuate the problem because no one wants to drive within 1.5 secs of another car for more than 2-3 laps. We argue about DRS and Pirelli, and the default rebuttle to criticism of them is "so you want to go back to the old boring days?", it's not where the discussion should be starting from. We should be looking at the "old boring days", seeing the problems, and come up with real long term solutions to those issues.
The sport got massively sidetracked because of Canada 2010, and everyone's moaning about overtaking. They couldn't overtake because they couldn't get near each other, fix that, DRS was only ever meant to be a stop-gap, not a permanent solution, the aero regs allowing close running should be the primary focus year on year with the technical regs.
