If Formula 1 has proved one thing in recent years, it's that you really can have too much of a good thing. And that's equally true of something that is believed to be a good thing.
To be precise, you can have too much overtaking, something Fernando Alonso highlighted in the build-up to the Russian Grand Prix in a heartfelt discussion about the state of F1.
When F1 went through a period of soul searching towards the end of the last decade, this need for overtaking was considered to be paramount. And not without reason, for it was what the fans demanded. So give the fans what they want.
