@SamuelJohnConnolly @RED27 Well the same thing had a different name in the mid 60's to mid 70's Can-Am the racing with a very thin rule book...I know Porsche went and killed it with the 917/30 but like I said if the cars get to fast for the circuts/drivers you just cap the amount of fuel you can use you would encourage effcientcy, I know Gordon Murray also proposed a "BOX" fomula back in the mid 90's...in the 70's and early 80's F1 hada whole world of different designs and powerplants in '82 there was 11 different winners in a season a feild of V12 and V8 atmo cars V8, V6 and inline 4 Turbos all at the then cutting edge wich produced at times quite unpredictable racing and of course ground effect a lot of cars did not run front wings at some circuts the racing as far as I can remember was alot closer no need for DRS as the cars could follow a lot closer for a lot less penalty in performance

Just an idea

F1 needs a "BOX" rule book, I would ban front and rear wings, wings destory close racing if a car generates downforce within it's wheelbase it is not effected by fowlling another car anyway near as much as a front wing is and the car is far less pitch sensative and allow "anything" in the area from the back of the front wheel to the front of the back wheel...No Skirts No Fans...but anything else, you could have a BHP limit of say 1000 bhp a minimum weight limit of say 600 kg and a fuel limit...No refuelling pit stops and you would have to use comerciall pump fuel that way you could have a whole range of engines/power units competing aginst aech other and cars of differing designs and concepts, and if the cars got to fast you just decress the amount of fuel, a "BOX" rule book would mean a team with a great concept could out perform a team with a huge budget you also encourage more manufatures to be involved.

Look at Le Mans LMP1 and LMP2 a much less strict rule book and at the moment much more interesting concepts and designs.

Beyond tacky...such a waste of skill and engineering...but taste is a personnel  and this  over designed carbon bling fest is not mine.

Must be a Typo about Nigel n' Lotus looks like a type 94T from '84/'85 ? the really cool thing about this car is the rear wing X4 very narrow cord "winglets" stacked on top of each other the idea was that it would have a low drag for big downforce, I remember seeing it in pictures back in the day not sure if it ever made it past Quali and got Raced ? simalar to what Ferrari did back in '82 at long beach
