    @rethla: Again, I'm unsure what you mean by "roll easy". I'm no expert, but I'd have thought the design of the suspension has greater similarity between F1 and Formula E than it does for LMP, since t...

    @burgavo: Yeah, or you could add weight penalties for the leading cars, like in BTTC and DTM, or make the wheels of all the top cars smaller! I thought the idea of F1 was to have different teams try ...
