The drug that lets me forget these seasons would be a nice technical innovation. Cars became teerjerkingly ugly, it saw the final takeover from sport to show and now we end up with even more rules than we began with in 2009.

 

If I have to choose, I would say the F-duct. The rest is way to technical and the F-duct was the only thing which made you curious how it exactly works.

FRIC's actually been discussed for 2 1/2 years, and has been generating interest all over the F1 related forums and media. From the given options though, since it is a poll, I agree with you, as I already wrote.

Trick diffusers and FRIC / "J Damper" mods were the best. 

 

My personal favorite is the "legal yet banned" RedBull suspension ride height adjuster because it was the advantage that didn't exist.

definitely the coanda, all of the other stuff was a simple case of copying and making it work. have a look at mclaren, sauber, williams and toro rosso for teams who tried the blowing without always getting much success
