Everything that is wrong with Formula 1 right there

What kind of 'sport' determines its winners and losers according to algorithmic calculations about how long it takes to get to the garage and back?

Calling F1 a 'sport' and the individual episode a 'race' should be done by the Trades Description Act.

Make the tracks wider so that the drivers can actually overtake, reduce all the in-race telemetry to the absolute minimum required for driver & crowd safety (by all means analyse the heck out of the gathered data afterwards), and cut the rule book down by 700 pages throwing out all the nonsense that means the start order is rarely actually determined by the qualifying laps, and then maybe you'd have something that was actually getting somewhere within a chance of being called a *sport*.
