You are speaking for yourself and not the masses. It is absolutely a big problem but we set the bar so low that we talk about great races if something happens during a race.
The dirty air issue is a massive problem, not being able to follow a car is everything that can be wrong with a sport.
The die hards accept it now, the bigger public won't in the future.
It's the other way around IMO.
Once you get more involved into a sport you set certain standards that said sport should achieve. Somebody who is new to the sport doesnt have those standards. For them the current Ferrari fallout could be enough to get them hooked up, and after a couple of years when they are in the bubble they also create different standards.
Why do you think has the Netflix documentary worked so well? Because it sold narratives. It's plain simple. Of course that narrative could also be action-packed races, I'm not denying that, but it isnt a necessity. As again, the refuelling era showed: I too thought it was amazing back then, because I lacked knowledge, but upon re-watching races I realized that they were extremely dull.
Unless somebody has already background it isnt the action on the track that will get them interested into a sport. That's rarely the case.
