That was a joke because of the memes where girl is always portrayed “boring” and stressed and the boy is You are the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success act like it shirt doing something “fun” and quirky. It just annoys me. But people don’t seem to understand hence the downvotes.I can’t decide which is worse: FanBoost or GT World Challenge’s new idea of forcing its teams and drivers to take part in points-paying esports races. The idea of FanBoost is slightly worse to me (at least GTWC’s actual participants have more of a role in its gimmick), but points-paying esports races seems like it’d have more of a (detrimental) effect on championships.

You vote for drivers on social media (ala Driver of the Day) and the top You are the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success act like it shirt t a 100kJ boost which boosts the car’s power from 200KW to 240-250KW for about 5 seconds. You get one attempt to make a pass and in races where you have to conserve energy, you might even want to avoid using it.A lot of the hate for fan boost simply comes from the idea itself. I think most people understand its purpose is to push fan engagement (IMO engagement has truly become the worst word of the social media era) and not necessarily actually effect races. Still, keep that shit out of the sport IMO. As a fan it’s just not a concept I want taking hold as motorsport in general moves further away from ICE.I think a “Driver of the Day” table would be an easy way to do that, Top 10 or so get points (non Championship before anyone explodes) with the Season winner getting some kind of Trophy/Title/Marking on their Car next year as well as some Cash to a Charity of their choice.I know it would, to misquote a Pratchett misquote, be Kimi all the way down. But would drive at least some engagement and still be less shit than fucking FanBoost.Would be interesting, albeit not massively possible atm, to see how an “Attack Mode” system would fit into a future F1. There is enough Risk/Reward as well as Strategy there and its not just “GIVE AN ADVANTAGE TO WHOEVER DID A FUNNY TIKTOK”
