Gurmit's View: It's The Pits

NEWS STORY
18/05/2015

Debate continues as to whether the 'new' rules proposed by the Strategy Group will really spice up the sport.

Refuelling was abandoned before - several times in fact - so quite how the powers-that-be have come to the conclusion that it will have fans on the edges of their seats this time around remains a mystery.

There is talk of lap times dropping by between five and six seconds courtesy of aerodynamic rules evolution and wider tyres, this at a time when teams are spending millions trying to cut their times by a fraction of a second.

There's the suggestion that teams should have a free call on tyres, when Pirelli is already claiming that this would compromise safety.

Then there's the call for cars to look more aggressive, something which clearly got Gurmit thinking...

For at Barcelona, for example, were it heading towards you at 60 mph... assisted by a tailwind, steered by Fernando Alonso and with a visor rip-off stuck in its left-front wheel, thereby preventing it stopping, even a shopping trolley would look pretty damn aggressive.

Check out the latest from Gurmit, here.
