F1 » Engine change 'slowly destroying F1', says Ecclestone

Fluffy71, you are spot on. F1 should be about mind blowing sensory overload not endurance, fuel saving, tyre saving, noiseless, semi battery powered machines - bland doesn't even come close to describing the current underwhelming experience of sitting trackside. Sure the racing hasn't always been great even back in the v12 and v10 days, but the experience of hearing those cars at 19 odd thousand revs completely made up for it, I was addicted to those days and probably went to around 4 race meetings a year. Not been once since witnessing the complete farce of the hybrid engines, first day of testing in Jerez 2014 and I suspect I am one of very many who just don't bother anymore. When I think of what has happened to my once beloved sport I genuinely get a bit depressed!

F1 » Suzi Perry: F1 is kneejerk, MotoGP more methodical

rob01: They don't have to deal with bernie.
But has F1 been rubbish all the time Bernie has been in charge or just since the parasitic CVC got involved? Motogp is owned by Bridgepoint - another venture capital mob - who appear far less greedy than CVC. Since they took over (2011) Motogp has actually improved and is currently healthy. Since CVC took over F1 in 2006, a very different story has unravelled. Was F1 better when it was the Max & Bernie show (1978 - 2005) ?
Yes, immensely so, I long for the days when my year was shaped by attending races, such an exciting time to be trackside it was. Not been to a race since I witnessed the Hybrid cars on their very first day of testing at Jerez 2014, in fact on day two I drove to Seville and saw the sights,it was so boring. Such a shame that what was once the most exciting and exhilarating sport on earth has become so bland and detached.

F1 » Boullier: F1 making positive step with qualifying change

Well, I can go some way there.. F1 has never been about out and out racing, it's been more about a show, a spectacle if you like..something you go and watch/experience because it makes the hairs on your neck stand up and is memorable from the first time you ever went. As it stands, F1 is none of these things, it's bland, unexciting and has nothing that makes it stand out from other racing series. If there was another v10/12 open seater formula it would be dead and buried. All that said, you are more interested in racing than something which is mindblowingly exciting - why not go and watch junior kart racing, that's about a good a racing series as you will get.

F1 » Ecclestone hoping qualifying flop was simply ‘unlucky’

I'm really not getting all this Bernie bashing. He is the only one (within F1's hierarchy) publicly saying what most of us are saying yet at he same time he is the devil in disguise? Reverse grid qualifying (top 10) would be great, how can it not be compared to putting the fastest bloke at the front? Bernie says the racing is rubbish, the hybrids have ruined the sport, he wouldn't pay to watch etc - isn't this what I hear most fans saying day after day? He's not perfect but if you dig a bit deeper into who controls what nowadays the 'F1 wreck' is not of his making, I don't see Bernie as the bad guy he's constantly being painted as.
