F1 » Kate Walker: Sport requires a level playing field

continued: My point is: The more control a sanctioning body exerts, the less interest among fans. I read a lot of griping here on Crashnet about boring F1 races, but attendance and TV viewing numbers are far and away larger than any other racing series. I'm not suggesting changes shouldn't be made, but trying to achieving parity and reducing costs will definitely damage F1. Racing is somewhat like cooking, a certain amount of spice will enhance the entree, but too much spice will make it unpalatable.

F1 » Kate Walker: Sport requires a level playing field

Cryonbrian: Keep Formula One the way it is! Only the strong will survive!
There is a lot more to that statement than meets the eye. Parity in racing is what exists in Nascar. Many different leaders throughout the race and many different winners throughout the season. Although Nascar enjoyed tremendous success in past years, they are now having a decrease in attendance, with, I would guess, a decrease in TV viewership. This decrease has coincided with an ever increasing control by the sanctioning body, Nascar. The IRL, which the stated purpose when formed was to decrease the cost of participation for teams, has been less than successful. The Indy 500 is but a shell of its former self. Indycar racing has become pretty much a spec series with 1 chassis manufacture.

F1 » Hamilton takes title lead after easy Mercedes one-two

breeza: Well done Ricky, SV eating your dust, Webber must be having the best time of his life seeing King Vet humbled by Ricky. I love it, at least one team mate has shown SV where to stick that finger, if he dares...Loooviiing this season so far......
Actually, I would think Webber is shown to be even less of a driver than he was considered to be. After all, he couldn't beat Vettel and Vettel is consistently being beat by Ricciardio
