F1 » Raikkonen urges for a faster, more ‘dangerous’ F1

It seems every time a racing series attempts to control costs they lose fans and don't control costs much, if at all. Cost control was the reason for the formation of the Indy Race League, which in-turn caused the demise of Champ Cars. Champ Car races frequently had over 100,000 race day attendance. Today's Indy Car races, excepting the Indy 500, are sparsely attended. Many Indy Car venues have more empty seats than those seats with bodies in them. It appears F1 (read Bernie Ecclestone) has taken a page out of the Tony George book,"How to run off racing fans". Racing is not for the skint of pocketbook. There will always be some who are better at raising money than others, and some who are better at using money to race. Let it be so.
