"I long for the days when cars didn't have such things (like the 60's)."

I'd settle for the days when the teams had a good deal more freedom.

- Swept volume is x litres and configuration is what you want (remember BRM trying out an H16?).

- Use whatever tyres you want on whatever wheels you want and work out what you think is the best strategy (whe was it who built the 6-wheeler?).

Nowadays it seems that if the (bar) stewards found an engine ingested a stray fly during practice they'd give a 3 place grid penalty.
