The main risk associated with ground effect and why they did away with it was if you broke one of the flush bits that sealed the car off to the ground, you'd barrel into the corner expecting the same level of grip that the car generated before that bit broke and kill yourself. I guess they can have sensors to monitor that sort of stuff now.
That's the part that wont come back. Modern designs rely on vortex generators to seal the gap and should be a bit more resilient to that failure mode. CART ran ground effect for it's existence and apart from taking off when going backwards the problems of the early cars is understood as I understand it.

Never said it came first, but it disappeared before tobacco sponsors disappeared. Hence we need to back further to re-instate it.

I was thinking they should just let the van go round the track and waive the first few laps...

To be fair, root canal surgery is much more fun when you’re drunk.

Especially if you’re the surgeon
