Got to agree with that sentiment: F1 is the pinnacle of motorsport but about as relevant today as t*ts on a bull.
And the problem with a pinnacle is once you're up there, there's nothing to see, the only way is down and it's a long way to fall.
It's moved from being a sporting spectacular to being a television spectacular - not the same thing at all, in much the same way that `talent` shows generally only reveal how little talent there is on display.
And its the money men and rule makers that are to blame. The old adage of `racing improves the breed` is true for almost all motorsport, EXCEPT for F1.
Not so sure that Formula e has yet got out of the garden shed, common engine and powertrain never was a good start but at least now variety is the spice of life, and the taster for change. But for now it's still F1 tech, powered by electric motors instead of ICE.
