Somewhat understandable, as it mooved further and further away from road cars.
Had to I guess as both Manufacturer interest waned and the big grunty road car didn't exist any more anyway.
Seems to me that there is little actual "racing" , particularly as they try to make the cars so identical.
The whole focus seems to be on pit/ fuel/ tyre strategy with a topping of whinging about " parity".
Gen 3 was to be the "fix", but the less aero that was supposed to make them slide more and be harder to drive, seems to be simply overcome by the sticky tyres they are now running.
What's the answer?... dunno, can't see it lasting in it's current form.
Can't fault the " techo-ness" of it or the fact that they put on " a show" or noise & colour.
Maybe just leave them as they are, make them hard to drive, put 'em back on road tyres. If the lap times are 20secs slower, so what.
