The golden era of Formula 1

When was the golden era of Formula 1? I have defined the eras in the same way that Autosport did in 2018, but changed the recent seasons as I didn't like the way they had done those.

Not a criticism as there is no perfect way.

I’d have split the 1.5 and 3l eras in the sixties and had the next change related to turbos (intro of them, or from first race win or championship). Then split the turbos from the 3.5l to the banning of active and driver aids.
However no need to split out the F1/F2 etc. stuff in the 50s.

Vorder's reign ended in 2008 - is that when the golden era ended?

So '92 onwards then (or 2004 if you count when she became the permanent lexicographer.)

I think we've narrowed down the golden era to being 2004-2008.



Randomly - that period is an interesting time in F1. Schumacher's last title then saw Alonso king of the golden era, before Hamilton took over the reigns in 2008.

2004-2008, the era when Vorders and Whitely ended their time on Countdown and Dent became the cornerstone. And the era when Schumacher, Alonso, Räikkönen, Hamilton and Massa were title contenders in F1.

And the beginning of Countdown ushered in the turbo era where they were good enough to claim championships. And this era ended when they stopped using the old blocks set.

Hmm tough one. 1950-60 was a dangerous era, but also an era with cars and circuits that separated the men from the boys.

61-73 is one where so much changed first you had the 1.5 litre formula, then the 3 litre, then the introduction of wings.

74-82 was a really competitive era, although by 82 it had got really dangerous.

83-93 was also competitive, with safety a lot better than it had been and with refuelling banned in 84, was how racing should be.

94-2005 had it's moments, 97 was probably the best year of the bunch, but the racing was taken away by refuelling. And then there was the grooved tyres and reintroduction of TC

2006-13 saw the introduction of V8s. Not quite as exciting as the V10s, but at least the racing improved slightly when they got rid of refuelling and traction control and went back to slicks.

2014-21 the hybrid era. Hasn't exactly lived up to it's promise, mainly Merc dominating, although still had enough exciting racing going on, although the gimmicks have been a bit much

On balance I will go for 83-93
