    And even so, I don't understand why they'd be against it. Of course I have no authority on the matter but in theory the cars sound like they will be harder to drive and require more from the drivers than the current cars, which while fast and capable are apparently relatively stable and easy to drive fast (especially over jumps). I think from a spectator standpoint the show will be quite spectacular.

    I’m sure they will be better to drive than the drivers imagine right now, clever engineers have a funny way of designing round problems placed in front of them.

    Of course they aren't exited. The cars will be a step back in terms of speed.

    That doesn't mean its not a good idea to cut costs, or that drivers won't enjoy driving them.

    How about the count of drivers who would rather go unemployed and see one or two of the current teams pull out, than drive the new Rally1 cars

    You think he's retiring because of the new rules?
