Force India CEO Vijay Mallya has urged F1 not to rush into changes just because the Bahrain GP was a bore.

I guess he reckons his team has designed a decent car round the regs and will be reluctant to support changing the regulations. Especially when that team isn't awash with money.

Not seeing the bigger picture though :rolleyes:

To be honest, I tend to MILDLY agree, give it a few races, as the Bahrein circuit is probably the most boring racing track design even, after Turkey, Valencia, Singapore, Malaysia and... Oooops, I guess we're freakin screwed... A camel or goat race anyone???

I'm still campaigning for the end of mandatory use of both compounds which has lost its meaning with the end of refuelling.

For the rest, there's very little that can be realistically done this year.

@cdf, absolutely right. one thing about american sports in general is that they realise the importance of the fans and try to provide the best entertainment possible.

could you imagine if irl or nascar served up the same dross f1 did last week? the american fans would walk away in their thousands and they would have every right to do so.

it wouldn't be a discussion, changes would be made p.d.q.

I wonder what the wash up will be after the teams evaluate how much fuel they actually had left in the tank... were some being over cautious.. will we see more drastic or severe calculations to try to get that extra edge... and possibly finish up on the side of the road without an oily rag? :?

Bob, the possibility of finishing on the side of the road will always be there, we have seen it happen many a time, in FI extra weight never helped win races, I suspect that it very nearly happened in the first race but then maybe they told SV to shut the engine off just after crossing the line for fear of any more damage.
