I believe that F1 has lost any pretence of being true motor sport; for that, we must thank Bernie Ecclescake. It's now just a motor sport related advertising bonanza.
Personally I now have no interest in F1. I can't pinpoint exactly when I ceased to be interested, but it's a few years now, although I've never really been very enthusiastic about "slicks & wings" racing.
The problem with cars which have so much aerodynamic grip is that overtaking or even running close together becomes very difficult; F1 has had to resort to increasingly artificial means to (partially) overcome that problem.
The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".
