Symonds: Reverse grids could solve F1's overtaking problem

Pay Symonds on the virtue of reverse grids: 

"If you turn things round a little bit, and say, 'no matter how good your car is, it's going to be running in turbulent air', you might then say, 'actually the best racing car I can make that will ultimately be the most successful over a season is one that is quick in nice clean air, but also works well in turbulent air'," he added.

I still say reverse grids make a mockery of qualifying and the sport as a whole, but if you needed a way to force the hand of designers and the regulation wranglers, this would certainly do it!
