[quote="thestoatyone"]F1's been dull for the last decade or so, up until the last season or so I reckon. I'm just holding out for turbos and slicks coming back. Either way, for the last ten years rallying has been much more entertaining than the "Lets all follow Schumacher" procession of F1 IMO.
p.s. that mini is an abomination, but with prodrive behind it, it will clear up...
Slicks have been back for a couple of seasons already, turbo diesels maybe here in 2013 when the engine regs are up for renewal as F1 needs to be seen to be improving its environmental credentials (although F1 engines are already more fuel efficient than any current non-electric road car, it's just the drag that makes the consumption rocket).
Not sure about any procession of cars behind Schumacher though - he retired in 2006 and had already stopped "dominating" the sport by 2005 (he won 1 race that season, and he only really stood out from the rest for 2 seasons during that period - 2002 and 2003 - either side of that he had Senna, Prost, Hakkinen, Raikkonen (91 pts to Schumacher's 93 that year) and Alonso to contend with). In fact, the only season he really dominated was 2001 when Hakkinen was driving a turd and ready to retire.
