F1 manual transmission comeback
-->
Been looking at a few videos of F1 races when they were still using manual gears. I noticed that drivers tend to shift up sequentially when slowing down & double declutching (blipping) for each gear. For eg Driving on a straight in 6th gear & approaching a 3rd gear corner, they will 1st start braking hard & then 6th (blip), 5th (blip), 4th (blip) ,3rd, steer the car around the corner & start accelerating hard upon exit.

Why must it be so cumbersome? Cant they just simplify things & just do like - brake hard, blip once & straightaway shift into 3rd from 6th? Is the cumbersome way of doing things to ensure smoother gear shifting (maybe no synchromesh on car?) Or does it have something to do with using engine braking to aid/complement disk braking?

on a seperate note - I hope manual transmission does indeed make a comeback in future. Keeps them drivers busy, you see.
