- suggest to the ostriches that if they want to give a message about racing improving the breed it might be an idea to use tyres that aren't knackered in less time than it takes me to drink a mug of tea



- relax rules to allow different engine layouts and single car teams . If you are fast enough you are in - and that is to a 30 car grid BTW
The link between the race car and the street car isn't the parts it's the branding. It's also the ideas and the ability to play AND get the beancounters approval for the engineers' fun.

The tires bit has bothered me since they decided to be "more efficient" but then use tires that last seconds. Seems like requiring thousands of tires per weekend is more wasteful not efficient.

The rules being relaxed would last about 1 season and everyone would have the same answer to the puzzle. It doesn't work any longer to have the open rules, the money and costs are too high without the high profit sponsors of tobacco. Everyone knows what goes fast now, suddenly opening the rules wouldn't mean a variety of cars, styles, engines. The engineer would have the answer and math is the same for everyone. The only differences would be forced on them by marketing, see WEC LMP1 before it imploded. The engine choices were made by the boardroom not the engineers.
