Bahrain boring? Blame Bernie, not the refuelling ban « doctorvee #f1

For me, the biggest legacy of refuelling has been to gift seven World Championships to a driver who isn’t particularly good at wheel-to-wheel racing, but transformed “overtaking into the pit lane” (i.e. gaining positions just by being in the pit lane at the right time) into the most important aspect of modern-day grand prix racing.

A very good piece on the refuelling vs strategy vs formula 1 chess debate.
