Racing is boring in 2014

Sergio Perez believes the lack of downforce in the new generation of F1 cars is having a detrimental effect on racing for both drivers and fans.

Tyre degradation was an issue during the race in Malaysia, while passing opportunities were at a premium, though Perez was forced to sit out after failing to emerge from the garage for the warm-up lap. Despite having a front row seat to watch the action Perez admits he was impressed by what he saw.

“Malaysia was quite a boring race,” Perez said. “F1 has changed a lot. There’s less downforce in the tyres, and although Pirelli is going really aggressive with the new harder tyre compounds degradation is not really improving. It’s because you are sliding a lot so you are degrading like it was a softer compound.

    It isn’t the downforce; that’s the same for everyone. It’s two things: the difference in team design talent and the difference in team money. At least give every team the same amount to money to work with, or stop complaining it’s boring (which it definitely is).
