I WILL NEVER FORGIVE MCLAREN FOR FOR BRINGING US GROOVED TIRES AND THE 10% NARROWER TRACK!!! Phuck them.
That was their idea for bringing down the speeds, back in 1997. The original idea was to have movable front wings. But, there had been a number of wet weather races, and the powers that be up @ the FIA loved the action. The folks over @ McLaren showed that the same effect as a wet race could be achieved by narrowing the track of the cars by 10%, and limiting the contact patch of the tires.
...and oh yeah, they just happened to win that first race of the year by lapping the entire field!!!
Sorry read it in a book, not on the 'net
