    It used to be very good. I still believe in the formula and I think it is the ideal car for beginning drivers wanting to start an international career. They are not cheap, but they are the real deal with the sequential gearbox etc.

    In my opinion the issue is that FIA didn't decide to make the R2T faster than traditional atmospheric cars already one or two years back. For sure it would hurt at the beginning but it's the only way how to make the manufacturers invest in the new R2T. Meanwhile there is no hope new atmospheric cars would come because the manufacturers mostly already stopped production of useful engines. Thanks to that we are now in this lose-lose situation.

    Totally agree. FIA totally dropped the ball with this one and out of step with what the manufacturers are coming up with. Hard pressed to see anyone else entering the fray at this point.
