Big F1 fan here! Those 2 second pit stops are amazing but I wish they would reintroduce fuel strategy. :pipe:

I agree. Let the petrolheads refuel once or even twice during a race and leave the on-board-fuel-limited races to the E cars. I understand the safety concerns, but c'mon man, is zipping around the streets of Monaco at close to 200mph a perfectly safe activity to begin with?
