Then so be it. If a slower driver cannot overtake a faster one I can live with that. If things like aero wash can be reduced leading to more overtaking all the better.

Nah, it's the history of Supercars though. If they are happy with current viewer numbers/last year's crowd figures/industry involvement etc the they should definitely keep going down this path.

Remember, they gave everyone more tires last year (which was well received). Ostensibly they've reduced numbers this year for financial reasons, not to aid the racing

Seems like the ~15% reduction in downforce has been a complete flop.

Why wasn't a more ambitious downforce reduction set, taking off 100-150kg of downforce or more? Lots of people were saying why just take off 50 kg (from the former 350kgf @ 200 km/hr) and that it wouldn't be enough.

What a screwup! They had the chance to make some big changes -- to get rid of the oversized rear wing endplates and bootlid extensions on both cars completely, but they didn't do it. Doesn't make sense.
