And this is my version of the same thing which is that the current rules are too many and too restrictive, so we have the unedifying situation where the performance spread is only couple of seconds in a two+ minute lap time.
Apart from the construction rules that keep the driver alive in the crashes, let them do what they like to win a 300 mile race using no more than (say) 200 litres of fuel.
