If anything it's stifling the racing even more.
Why don't they just let them RACE and do away with all this crap. This is really going to detract from the enjoyment.
As DC said; they're going to have to hold back from going full-out during some of the laps (in practice and in the race) - where's the improvement in that attitude??
Schummacher changed engine after the 1st practice session, that's why he starts from the back of the grid!!
Why use one word, when fifty will do...
