After much discussion and debate off the track, the powers that be in F1 finally reached an accord of sorts in terms of the sport's direction during the latest Strategy Group meeting with a raft of proposals being put forward.

Ultimately, the motivation for change was geared towards improving the spectacle for audiences in an effort to reverse a downward trend in certain markets, as well as delegate more responsibility to teams to when it comes to devising race strategies.

Though these proposals still require them to be passed through F1 Commission before they are rubber stamped, this will considered positive first step towards change. The proposals are as follows...

- More aggressive looks

- Free choice of the two dry tyre compounds (out of four) that each team can use during the race weekend (for 2016)

However, given the changes are designed to improve the spectacle for you, we want to know what you think of the measures... will they have the desired effect? Do they go far enough? Is there anything you like more than others?

Give the designers free reign to DESIGN.

Won't happen, of course, but the rubbish that's come out of this last meeting is just papering over structural cracks in F1.
