I used to love F1, stayed up late nights etc...then it became a procession, all driver aids and fuel stops, no overtaking and cars that looked like slot cars that never moved off line. I just finished watching F1 QP and what a revelation! TC and other driver aids removed, the drivers now have to drive their cars, they move all over the place, they power slide out of turns. Awesome. It was immediately obvious that (as Brundle pointed out), they can no longer plant the throttle, they have to manage the car through the whole corner. Motogp, take note. In another thread people are in awe how Schumacher can take a GP7 to within 5s of a lap record. Although we assume that Schuey can't ride (I think he's ridden for years) I want to see a sport where bikes require awesome skill to ride. I want to see power slides, mono's, bikes misbehaving. Is it so ridiculous to ask that Motogp bikes have some of their rider aids removed? I don't want to see launch control, anti-wheelie control, fuel maps that change when the bike is mid corner, traction control that allows a rider to go WOT mid corner. If they don't do something, grids of 18 riders will get even smaller.
