f1 and top fuel should be completely unlimited classes, but technology has surpassed the human body's ability to stay conscious or alive during said competitions, i.e. john stapp and detached retinae, f16
Personally, I think the biggest thing holding F1 back is their sanctioning body/stewards.
These assholes need to let the drivers race.
Vettel got absolutely robbed in Canada. And that was the best award ceremony I have ever seen.
That was pathetic. Max almost got the same treatment in Austria. I think if he'd have gotten penalized out of that win by the stewards there would've been a riot- there was shit-ton of Dutch fans there last weekend.

If you want to compare really compare apples to apples you need to look at F1 and Indycar. Indycars have the comparable speed, handling and race some really long circuits. They also do a lot more laps than F1 on old tech and as a group are a lot more competitive.
I like both venues myself. F1 because of the ridiculous hi tech and the prestige. Indycars for the closer racing at high speed.
The Indycars will be here at Laguna Seca this September for the first time in years.
My favorite indy car of all time was the Lotus turbine. I remember as a kid it was my favorite Hotwheel and I took a keen interest in its exploits. Never quite lived up to its potential and was quickly outlawed. Too bad. I loved the minimalist design.
Closet motorhead here. F1 cars are insane and the $$ and logistics in the sport are even more insane. They definitely need to do something to get more passing into it, though. Still, more interesting than going around in a circle like Indy or NASCAR.
I really like endurance racing - Le Mans and Sebring and the like. The cars are equally insane as F1 and they have classes for production GT cars like Ferraris, Porsches, and Ford GTs, racing at the same time as the prototypes.
A threat response is a potent trigger for motivated reasoning.
