How is a driver going to possibly know if he is using too much fuel? Let's see how the fans like seeing a driver run out of fuel on the last lap. Even NASCAR let's teams tell their drivers when they think they are marginal on fuel. How is withholding fuel data going to improve "the show" if that is what the FIA is going for? So drivers will be blind to their fuel consumption and be forced drive conservatively? Leave that crap to FormulaE please.
And no messages about brake temps or warnings? I am sure having a driver run out of brakes at an inopportune time will add the the spectacle of F1.
