IndyCar » Series CEO issues warning over Fontana criticism


Miles brought up a good point about the length of the season and TV. IndyCar makes itself more attractive to TV by ending as Football takes over the TV scheduling. Start in April, run 16-18 quality events, and finish at Labor Day. A more compact series will hold fans attention with each race counting for more and team budgets will be smaller over a season promoting more interest in joining the series. An attactive TV package that can be offered to the free-to-air networks is going to create more fans and give sponsors a larger return on their investments.

F1 » Tilke rejects blame for boring F1 races


While Herr Tilke makes a good point about the tech regs contributing to the problem it's interesting to see the failed circuits Tilke has designed and note that they were only used for a few races and abandoned. All in new markets which didn't embrace F1 or his circuits. It's obvious that not any measurable market research was done by FOM beyond counting the money.

F1 » Ecclestone: Mercedes not to blame for ‘one-sided’ F1


It's everything to do with the money! All the engine manufacturers agreed tot he current rules package because it was designed to limit development in the name of cost savings. the problem is that several of the engine makers did a poor job on their engine packages and can't improve them fast enough because the rules prohibit them. This is what happens when costs take precedence over competition. Participants should not be making the rules.
