As much as the chat can be amusing and//or controversial, one of the ways to improve F1 would be to get rid of all & any pit-car & car-pit comms. Back to pit boards and shouting instructions at pit stops.

No tyre restrictions. Put on what you want, when you want.
No team orders.
No in-race radio communication.
No telemetry.
Junk the hybrids & run 3 litre V10's or 12's.
Junk the DRS and all the other electronic gubbins.
Let the drivers focus on driving rather than being computer operators.
Then F1 might start to get a bit interesting again.

DuhFerrari: Thank you, I see Mattiacci in a different light.
Made all the other team principals look very small and self centered.

I totally agree. He could have simply gone along with the other team principals and bemoan what, in reality, was a tiny infringement of an even tinier subsection of the rule - rules which hardly and F1 fan knows or cares about - but instead he focused on what F1 is REALLY all about (fierce driving and overtaking) and ought to be aggressively promoting at every opportunity, whether it comes from Hamilton, Alonso, Ricciardo, etc. The guy seems to have perspective!

Wacky and Larry......totally agree on Pit - Driver comms. I have many times before on Crash said that I would like Driver - Pit (to get good soundbites!) but not Pit -Driver, unless for safety calls.
