A bit old, but not a bad doc.

Fun rule changes for 2015: radio restrictions. The pits have such advanced telemetry that the pit crews would just give the drivers instructions, like "Set your fuel mixture dial to 6" to get the optimal performance. Now they won't get to say stuff like that, forcing the drivers to make their own adjustments on the fly.

I think "no one would watch it" if there were no drivers is a fallacy.
My Dad loves F1 and I've always thought its really boring and that it would be a lot more interesting if they got rid of all the rules. We'd get to see what crazy stuff the engineers (who are the true stars imo) could come up with. Every team might have a wildly different strategy. Also we'd get to see just how far engineering can make an object go around the track.

There would need to be a few rules..
No drivers (for safety).
No weapons, ramming or unsportsmanlike behaviour of this ilk.
Vechicles must stay within the track bounds and cant exceed a certain height from the track.

As much as I love engineering, an unlimited race on current tracks would probably unwatchable without slow motion (and then what's the point?).

it would look like this, except faster;

would be great though.

A race like that would be kind of cool but then the human focus would be on sweaty dork engineers and not dashing playboy racers with lightning fast reflexes.

SolRo
hey, I'd be a dashing engineer if I finished college.

that aside, it's why F1 needs drivers...because I can still beard out over millimeter changes in chassis design while normal people can obsess about stupid shit like if a driver has a nice mindset for a race or if they're going to lose the next 5 races because they didn't win the last one, and what their focusing on going into this race (hint; it's always winning and getting maximum points for the team)

@MPCG, actually, Money is a bigger driver of technical restrictions than driver safety. Without them, basically the team willing to spend the most money would win every year, and drive all the other teams from the sport. Basically what killed Can-Am, where Porsche was fielding a 1300hp car and completely dominating all the other team, to the point that they all pulled out. A technically unlimited series would still need a budget cap.

I think f1 is pretty cool but I prefer the Le Mans series. Especially the GT classes with the suped up stock cars. The new corvettes, the C7.R is a mean looking son of a bitch.

SolRo
money is a driving force in another way; race track owners.

a retardedly fast racing series on an existing track would need massive upgrades to race track barriers to keep cars from just shooting through them (or tumbling over them) into the spectator stands. IF spectator numbers don't justify the spending, there would be few (if any) tracks for the races.
