That's easy to answer, try lowering your excessive wage demands, and whilst we are at it get rid of all the free loading hanger on so called celebs, yes the very ones who can afford to pay their own way out of the change in their back pockets.
Maybe then ticket prices could be lowered to a reasonable level and genuine fans of the sport can actually afford to attend the meeting.

It's a sad state of affairs tbh.

Because the Mercedes team is not German it's British in every way... And because F 1 is the furthest thing from racing right now. It's show business with some engineering thrown in... The ticket prices are ridiculous and no normal person wants to be ripped off that badly...I'm not suprised at all

F1 has become sterile and uninteresting over regulated with the excuse of cost capping the cars have become little more than large scalextric toys with little involvement for the fans. The cost of lining Bernies pocket and his mate Murdoch is ringing the death knell for Fi get back to basics of racing fast drivers in fast cars with all the noise and spectacle of overtaking and hard driving get rid of artificial pit stops let teams run what tyres they want when they want let have real racing.
