The dynamic F1 has been missing for a decade
By:

Although the Lewis Hamilton versus Sebastian Vettel rivalry has given us plenty of entertainment in recent years, Formula 1 hasn't had a true title decider since Nico Rosberg's departure at the end of 2016. It's been a whole decade since more than two teams took the fight down to the wire, so 2020 - if it ever gets underway - has a lot to live up to

There's something special about a title fight going down to the wire in any league or points-gathering-based sport. It piles on the drama, the pressure, the climactic imagery. Such scenarios speak to our urge for things to be as good as they possibly can.

Some sports - American leagues especially - cap their regular seasons with playoff competitions to guarantee finale drama, something NASCAR adopted in 2004 with 'The Chase', which became its own playoffs in 2016.
