Honestly, I already have enough discussion on F1 technology on other F1 forums, and everyone has concluded that F1 bring almost nothing to road cars, other than Ferrari road cars. Carbon parts, how many road cars has them? How many cars are using CF monocoque? F1 cars are never durable, parts on road cars are completely different, one for performance, one for reliability. Have you seen the weight difference of the cam shaft of an F1 engine and road car engine? "F1 style gearbox with changing gears behind the wheel", most cars are merely auto gearbox with buttons... Except for certain high performance cars like Ferrari, BMW, but even then, it's nothing like what's on F1 cars. VTEC is one of the very few exceptions that I would agree with you. TBH, most of the technology comes from very very high end road cars like S-Class, like air bag etc... that never exists on F1 cars. What's the big deal with engine capacity change??? We have so many power reduction rules since the 80s, and I don't see any problem with that, so is downforce reduction (provided it's done properly)! I'm not interested in seeing 2000BHP cars without needing to slow down for Eau Rouge. The problems with the new rules this season make the competition really bad. - Point system: So Alonso with have to just keep scoring points for the remaining half of the season to win the world champion. Very nice. - Engine change penalty: Hurts the team and driver badly. But most spectators want to see the best driver winning the world champion, which is not the case this season. - No tyre change: Hurts Bridgestone runners this season, and many suffered punctures and risking safety. This season is so boring, I really feel like quit watching F1. Speed doesn't win. Luck does.
