The sport today is not only a shell of it former glory, its getting worse. Alot of international drivers, great young drivers are no longer bothering to secure an F1 seat, they are happier in the "lesser" classes, getting paid as much or alot more and not having to deal with the politics of the so called Formulaa Numero Uno. I watch F1 as I have been invovled with it for years, having said that, it doesnt mean I enjoy seeing whats happened to it, I prefer endurance racing.

Taipan, if fans of the sport who have been following it for decades have no right to comment on it then who does? It is OUR sport. We spend the money to watch it. We provide the TV audiences that allows the sport to be a multi billion dollar business. Sometimes the FIA forget this.

Wylie, I still don't get it, you earlier described F1 as pottering around in go-karts watching the fuel gauge and tyre wear.
That's certainly not how I'd describe F1. Regardless of how long you've been following the sport if that's what you currently think of it why do you waste your time and money on it?

@ Ty ... it's just that sector of the population that fears change. All doom & gloom before they accept the new way & look forward to the next time they can moan about the next change.

@Wylie & Co
F1 has changed massively & regularly over the last 30 something years I've been watching, but there have always been races on a Sunday that I've happily watched.
Next year there will still be the same teams, same drivers, same circuits ... and every race will have winners, losers, overtaking, crashes, controversy, tyre issues, fuel issues, etc.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
