Sadly, I think not. That's the 2020 livery.

Seems a bit weird as it seems to be a fairly simple system on the face of it.
I think it's also down to the CoG and base weight changes to the cars that the system introduces.

If you want to manipulate the racing, and make it a more 'made for tv' series then just hire Michael Masi as TOCA race director, who I believe will have a fairly empty diary in 2022.

Fan vote is something they should avoid. We already have the reverse grid, what more do we really need?

Michael "Creesy" Crees or Jade (no surname because she's my friend on Twitter) would be on pole all season long ?

The series doesn't need extra performance balancing.
Maybe give the teams one or two extra test days before the season starts.
If there are problems with the hybrid parts they could tune it down or even disable it.
