Agree on the need for innovation and the boredom that is tyre-management.Also I know that tyre management is a thing in racing, but wow is that a boring thing to have to spectate, may as well watch different colour paints dry to see who wins. They can easily make tyres that last the whole race, but they don't because they need ways to keep things "interesting". F1 need more innovations like the DRS to keep the overtakes and racing interesting.
Until there is more action per lap in F1 I am quite content to watch the highlights to keep up to speed. Excuse the pun.
I feel the opposite regarding DRS though. We only need it because the aero has been so complicated that is was the only way to make overtaking a real possibility. What I would like to see is less complicated aero, meaning following isn't as difficult and thus overtaking is a thing again. I don't know what percentage of overtakes come from DRS, but I prefer the hweel to wheel action. Albon?Hamilton is exactly the sort of racing and overtaking that I love seeing (minus the crash of course).
So, fix the aero.
Allow for innovation (DAS is a good example of innovation which is within current regulations and thus legal).
Remove all the complexities of the steering wheel and electronic changes possible (to a degree).
The 2021 (or is it now 2022?) rules seem to head in that direction which I think is pretty cool.
Innovation and focus on the drivers should be emphasized, all the other complexities should be shown the door.
