Mandate fewer mandates

In all seriousness: F1 should have fewer, or simpler, technical rules. There should be some 'sets' (for want of a better word) of tech regs that allow more free reign over (say) aero while minimising fuel allowance; another which allows bigger, thirstier engines but minimises aero elements on the wings; another which allows 100% electric drive thru all four wheels but smaller tyres. Or something like that.

Right now F1 is so tightly controlled it's essentially a spec series, and every time someone makes a better thing the rest of the teams whine until it's banned. Then the wheel turns, another team invent a better widget, and round we go again.

We all want "better racing". Let's have "different designs".
