I kinda like the push to pass. It's a lot more strategic and produces fair fights on overtaking moves than f1 does with drs. Not sure the timing of doing away with it when introducing a new aero package is a good idea, as even if they are more racey, it might still look like they aren't because of less passing without the push to pass.

What I definitely DO hope they do away with is double points at Sonoma. Indy 500 is fine, and I wouldn't mind if Pocono got the treatment as well, but if they're going to do extra points at a road course, make Road America 500k, and do 1.5x the usual points haul.

They are keeping it for next year but hopefully the new aero-kits will mean it's no longer needed.

One thing I quite liked about it was at least the defending driver could use it as well, unlike DRS.

Yes, that defending part is why I like it. It's fair and strategic. I thought the way they adjusted it this year to allow them to tap it on and off by the second was even better than before. Dang, I'm actually getting disappointed at the thought of it going away.

Well, we have another season of push-to-pass to go, so enjoy it while it lasts.

Defensive use of P2P often blocks out its impact though. They could just up the stock boost instead. It is happening incrementally, but 60hp would be a notable increase, get them closer to 800 than 700.

It would also more than offset the lost downforce when it comes to lap time. Not that anyone seemed to notice the lap records being broken anyway...

Exactly. As the boost is limited in time, drivers must decide carefully when to use it. In F1, DRS doesn't have a limit, so they always use it, and makes it boring. Not to mention that it prevents to defend fairly.

Thatís with DRS, itís too fixed in terms of where you use it and who uses it. P2P is free for all
