Do you think today's regulations, with engine homologation, limited engines per season, fixed gear ratios etc, have stagnated the competition?

The current engine regulations have certainly reduced the design risk levels that engine companies used to take. I can remember V12s, V8s and in-line four-cylinder turbos all competing in the same event.
Formula 1, as far as the chassis is concerned, with its current regulations is no longer a place for people like Colin Chapman, Gordon Murray, John Barnard or now Adrian Newey. They are people who thrive or thrived off creativity and innovation.
