  1. Good riddance. Jacques Villeneuve slated Max Mosley for bringing these wretched things in in ’98, and I think his criticisms have been proven correct. I think it’s very telling that not a single other major series would countenance running on them, except GP2, which ditched them after a single season (2005). Can’t wait to see the whole F1 field racing on proper slicks again.
