The New F1 Rules

I have purposely held off writing this to see what the reaction worldwide was. However, the "race" in Bahrain was a parade. If Vettel hadn't had a problem, there would have barely been any position swaps.
Whitmarsh and others are now coming out and saying the rules led to another processional game being played. After last year, this is indeed a disappointment.
What next?

SRO Wants to Add FIA GT2 World Championship in 2011

SRO has approached the FIA to postpone the proposed GT2 World Championship until 2011. This will allow the FIA GT1 and GT3 Championship to come to fruition and the specifications of GT2 & GT3 can be reviewed so as to make the 2 classes distinct.
It is felt that under the present rules the 2 classes will be very similar in performance.
Has SRO over reached in starting 3 Championships this year, or truly looking at a more competitive series for each class without overlap, one from the other?
I believe the latter.
