This is "Eco Friendly F1". It's ok, but not as much fun as the real F1 was. I miss all out speed, two tire supliers, refuling at every pit stop, 1 engine per race weekend. Better yet anyone remember qualifing engines...
The tire strategy the FIA has demanded of Pirelli isn't eco friendly. It's the opposite. They go through more tires in a race, not fewer. Not sure what you mean.

The unintended consequence is that qualifying suffers. The top cars ran very few laps. In two of the three segments they only came onto track for one time lap. If that continues, the FIA may make some changes.

It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.
