They have to change up gears themselves this season, should make it a little more interesting, maybe. They really need more overtaking, desperately. Pit battles are only so interesting for so long.
the best way to encourage overtaking, would be to make the cars harder to drive, ie. no traction control, no launch control, manual gears etc. If the cars are harder to drive, they will make more mistakes and then more overtaking!
Yes which is why I mentioned the change to manual change ups! They've always shifted down themselves but the computer did their up shifts perfectly for them. I think making the cars a bit more rubust would help too... the slightest bump usually means retirement or a long pit stop which almost always means race over, so overtaking is very risky. Especially the way Schumacher drives.
