    Fueling is quite risky these days, for an open car, like F1, the risk of getting flames is too big, and they will refuel in 3 seconds anyways. What i would like to see is less downforce and more mechanical grip, so drivers can really tailgate others in corners without worry too much about the reduced airflow. :lol:

    Well, fueling in WEC, IMSA, DTM, etc. seems to work just fine. Is risky and prone to fires? Yes. But I think it's another element in which teams can rely their strategy on. Do you want to fuel and lose more time in pits, but have a lighter car? Or is it better to never fuel and limit the fuel rate on the engine mapping? I think there would be more posibilities...

    Those are closed, tourism cars, the fuel is away from the driver. That's the main difference.

    Was good to see Vettel, Hamilton and Bottas chatting at the end of the race in Abu Dhabi... Wish the final race could be on a more exciting track that allowed the drivers to challenge each other a bit more. Hopefully Liberty can bring in some good changes in the future and not just kowtow to arab money.
