Let's hope that never happens.
Side comment after watching a bit of my 1st F1 race since before halos came in.
Those cars are among the ugliest race cars ever, in particular in profile. They make LMP1 cars look beautiful in comparison. It did not help to tune in shortly after the Indy race concluded, which are among the most beautiful current open wheel cars.
In F1, form most definitely does not follow function. The halos, the ridiculous rake, the even more ridiculous shark fins, all the other stupid aero bits........these cars are just plain fugly. Even FE cars are prettier.
I am not disagreeing with you, but I was looking at the last generation rear wing the other day. I think this generation is much better.
What are you going to do when Indy brings in the aeroscreen/halo?
^^ I'm over the halo, it doesn't bother me anymore. The front wings are far too big and that's why they get knocked off so often. The cars in general are too big, which is why some of the tracks seem too narrow now (that and the fact they are too narrow).
But the 2021 cars should look better, if the teams ever agree to the new regulations. The only problem is we almost have engine parity now (finally), and they risk throwing that away by changing the engine regs. I don't care too much what the cars look like if the racing is decent.
The engines are going to stand pat for the next couple of years. Pat Symonds mentioned that they are going to do a couple of things with fuel etc., but no major changes.
I have a feeling that come October the teams will have no choice but to accept what is in front of them. The cost cap hopefully won't be neutered.
