Ground effect of that era was really quite different to what is being proposed now. Lot more knowledge now & the software exists to run realistic simulations.

I don’t think it’ll be a repeat of those days & as others have said, it DOES work well in other current series.

I was out last night with a few people who have been around Motorsport generally for decades - the whole lot had stopped watching F1 as a “mustn’t miss” experience but now just catch the odd race. Enthusiasm gonski.

Every one of them complained about the current tyres resulting in drivers striking it around rather than actually, you know, racing.

We talked about 2021 quite a bit with enthusiasm sparking up - based on my straw (red wine) poll - 2021 can’t come soon enough.
