Hopefully, but narrower tracks (that's what wider cars get you), shorter braking distances and a heavier reliance on aerodynamics which don't work so well when following another car all point to a reduction in overtaking.

 

Hopefully more than one manufacturer will get the new rules right this time and they will fight it out over the season.

Yes wider cars at Monaco is gonna be interesting.  Some of the tracks might have enough room.

Even starting with new specs it would be hard to bet against the Merc cars.

RedBull and Ferrari were getting close by the end of the year, I was hoping the rules change would be a year or two later.
