F1 » F1 future under scrutiny in Strategy Group meeting

I think they and everyone else in Formula 1 knows full well it's a complete shambles and is failing miserably. Reading any forum will tell you what the fans think and it's not pretty. This idea that it needs to be somehow accountable to road going vehicles and 'green' is without doubt the main reason behind it's impending death. The ONLY way to save Formula 1 is for it to go back to its roots which means v8, 10, 12 cylinder engines, fuel stops, quality tyres and for crying out loud.. Noise.. in a nutshell, exciting entertainment, something that makes your hairs stand on end, in essence Formula 1 must be a pure spectacle. Question is, will there be a concensus to do what is so obviously needed, will enough influential figures 'step out of the box' and be brave and strong enough to make a stand for the radical changes that are so desperately needed? Or will they simply toe the corporate line and pretend everything is working just fine. Let's hope for once, common sense prevails.

F1 » Alonso bemoans lack of driver influence in F1

Fernando has hit the nail on the head. The sport is being run purely for the benefit of manufactures to promote their vehicles (Honda, Mercedes, Renault) hence we have these stupid little v6's with bolt on turbos and hybrid 'powerunits' (for God's sake please give us back ENGINES) and for other multinational brands that have no interest in racing except for exploiting it's exposure for self gain. Then we have all the greed and power seeking freaks in the middle each trying to carve the biggest slice of control and financial reward regardless of its knock on effect and outcome. Of course F1 is a business and needs to generate immense amounts of money just to put the show on the road however, it's completely lost its balance now between this and being a 'sport'. In its present state it's simply a stage for those with the most money (and influence) to stand up and dictate the rules regardless of how ludicrous they may be. We, the fan (read commodity) can like it or lump it - and I think m

F1 » F1 refuelling return proposed for 2017

Good news I'd say. They've clearly taken into account what the majority of fans are feeling. Realistically, a return to larger capacity engines was never on the cards but relaxing the tyre restrictions, bringing back refuelling, increasing power, revs and noise is a definite step in the right direction. Let's just hope were talking substantial increases and not just 'tweeks' else with expectations high it could all fall flat on its face come the opening race. There's an opportunity here for Formula 1 to revitalise even reinvent itself and win back it's audience, I'm counting on it getting things right this time so we can stop having all these negative discussions and get back to enjoying the spectacle that we once loved. Looking forward to more technical updates now..

F1 » Red Bull: Audi comes in or we are out

Jem: Why would VW wish to join a championship format that has no relevance to real world cars. VW would, I am sure, only participate in a championship where there is a feed back to road cars. That is why they have continued in Moto GP with Ducati.
You highlight exactly where Formula 1 has lost it's way. In a totally misguided direction it has reduced engine capacity, noise, added batteries and a couple of miles per gallon in a half hearted effort to try and make itself accountable - and at the same time alienated it's core audience and shot itself in both feet. How dumb can you get.

F1 » New F1 formula hasn’t failed, says Wolff

Bernie (on this occasion) is absolutey spot on and seems to be about the only bloke in Formula 1 who is reading the fans disillusionment. Toto, the FIA et al can keep regurgitating the same old 'green/relevance to road cars/supposedly money saving' nonsense but it's not working and it's followers aren't buying in, fact. As others have said, it's boring, bland and just contrived, the quicker they bin these current restrictive and spectacle killing regulations the better but it's going to be a good couple of years until that happens maybe a bit longer. But it will, it has to, in its present shape it's failing massively, roll on the day when we get our sport back, hijacks don't last forever and this particular episode has lasted way too long already.
