I think the issue is how many places they race at. It should be a simple Callander, Australia. Bahrain, China, Japan, India, Spain, Singapore, Italy, Germany, Monaco, UK, Belgium (European race that goes to different places) Canada, U.S. and end in Brazil. And allow them 8 engines per season so they use them to the max not what they do now with perceiving the engines..
It's actually quite simple. We all need to gather together, and with torches & pitchforks, march on Bernie Eccelstone's palace demanding that he leaves F1 or else.Viva la revolucion!Viva la F1!Maybe some people can bring along Pirelli Zero's and set fire to them in protest as well.
Moto GP highlights, a good 45 mins of on track action, F1 on the BBC, loads of chat and 20 mins of 'highlights', those of us who refuse to fork out for sky must be switching off in droves, how long before do what the Germans have done and kick the home GP into touch?
Aaah guys. Heres some 1990 F1 for ya. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UshKAxCZLDU
Doesn't matter what F1 does to change the rules.There will always be 1 team dominant.Only way to make it about driver skill is to eqaulise everything, which cant/wont happen because to many company reputations will be at stake.F1 has had its day.
Go back to top 6 points with 10 for win, stop covering the field with equal coverage (it loses the race narrative), no remote management, no Tilke circuits, bring back the gravel, stop bringing out the safety car, hello steel breaks, ban on board computers, no re-fueling, no tire changes, no more Coultard, raise the camera angles, and where's Imola? But then, what's the point of Silverstone now?
too many conspiracy car theories
About ten years back there were no tire changes allowed. If combined with no refueling it would be pure racing. Its not impossible to have flat out racing for 100 minutes without the need to interfere with unnecessary tire changes and refueling.But if F1 wanted to really make things interesting they would only follow the cars at the front like they used to. Right now its not tv friendly.
Sorry I don't think you can call modern F1 racing not with all the rule and tyer management required to get a car to finish a race.F1 is just about making money for the shareholders no one has listened to the fans in 20 years that's not to be changed any time soon.
The aero needs to be simplified. Only single front wings and rear BUT with full ground effect, but skirts should not be allowed. The tunnels under the sidepods should be defined. And no diffusor should be allowed to be mounted rear of the diff. All this to greate cleaner air hence closer racing and overtaking. 2M wide cars and fatter tyres.
Noise & speed - you cant tell the difference on TV.Qualifying was better when it was an hour long, take your chances - more unpredictable. The obsession with new tracks with 'superb' facilities has distracted from the racing, again no benefit for the TV viewer. The powers that be are so close to the sport, so immersed in it and too far removed from the average fan, to appreciate any of this.
Bring back refuelling and I stop watching. It got close to killing my interest in F1 last time and another stint at it will surely finish the job.Customers cars however I think, if done with the correct caveats ie only brand new teams can use them and for a max of 3 years after that they must build their own, is a great idea.
F1 just needs the cars to be able to race flat out for the full race distance and allow the cars to drive close together. Scrap DRS, change the rules regarding aerodynamics for closer running and change the tyres, that will give real overtaking.I disagree with refuelling, too dangerous and we want on track action, not pit stop overtakes.
My two penneth is... each race...1. A choice of tyre manufacturers2. Refuelling an option3. Open engine development4. Open chassis developmentSorry.. forget that..I can't watch it UNLESS I PAY £20 A MONTH FOR THE PRIVELEDGE... THEN MOTO GP ON ANOTHER CHANNEL.I'll just watch Formula E highlights then...Cheers F1. Dinosaurs.
Why do they tinker too much and always with the wrongs things. Free tyre choice and wider tyres - great. Refuelling - awful. The teams won't let drivers risk overtakes on track when they can do so much more with fuel strategy. Just tighten the rules on the rear aero so that the cars feed out cleaner airflow, allowing cars to close up and overtake.
Drive through penalty if the driver outside doesn't leave enough space for the driver on the inside at a corner apex, and also if driver on inside doesn't leave space for driver on inside at exit. The you can have overtakes last a few corners like the bikes do. If the cars need better mirrors (or cameras - or radar 'reverse' detectors!) to do that then do it!
The Bring-Awesome-Back Plan:#1 Put Bernie in either one of the Mercs or a Robin Reliant#2 Add roundabouts#3 Add jumps#4 Add pot holes#5 Add sleeping policemen - real ones#6 Driver with the short endures a dosing of strong laxatives#7 Rocket propulsion#8 Fans decide on fancy-dress theme for drivers#9 A whole sector dedicated to cooking oil#10 Start the race with a slow puncture
