Speaking as someone who grew up watching flat out racing... no, no you don't. Flat out racing is boring because everyone just runs at their maximum, the field - already in fastest-first order thanks to qualifying - gets strung out with big gaps between them, and nothing interesting happens. In my eyes, 2004 was a nadir for this - of the tracks that remain on the calendar since then, almost all of them have lap records set that year, but it was one of the most dull seasons ever. At least with the current regs there's the possibility of a mixed up grid due to engine penalties, or battles because of drivers not looking after their tyres, or even, with DRS... whisper it... overtaking! In 2004, when none of those things were around, if you'd suggested F1 could actually be exciting most people would look at you like you're insane. We actually get battles now, and people overtake each other on track!
