F1 » Todt vows to bring engine costs down

Jeez this man is out of touch with what people want. No wonder we're in the mess we are with him at the helm. Why oh why is he praising the notion of 4 cylinder engines just because Porsche succeeded in a completely different and irrelevant racing series to Formula 1?? Too often, those tasked with responsibility and leadership in sporting organisations exist in such a tight bubble of detachment from reality that they are literally clueless as to what's happening 'on the ground' and in the real world. Jean Todt illustrates this all too well.

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

When it gets to the stage that world champions are publicly saying Formula 1 has become boring you know the sport is in real trouble. The drivers know it, the fans know it, yet still we have politicians making rules that appeal to no one. This isn't going away, it's about time that those with the power to do so hold that hands up and admit they got it wrong - the current regs are fundamentally the wrong direction for F1.

F1 » Hamilton stays cool for Canadian GP win

For once we ought to bow to the old man's judgenent and bin the current regulations along with the pitifully boring tiddly 1.6 litre engines. How bland can this sport get - it's verging on becoming utterly pointless. How can anyone claim that was entertainment, what a farce Formula 1 has become. Seriously.. can anybody honestly say they're looking forward to the next race with relish, passion and anticipation?

F1 » Imola return to save Italian Grand Prix?

Monza is an iconic track, been there numerous times and it somehow is the spirit of Formula 1 however... the priority for me is saving Formula 1 from its own demise, I have absolutely no desire to sit trackside regardless of whether it's Monza, Spa or Silverstone in its current state and bemoan the sport for being so bland and uninspiring. Roll on the morning I wake up and read the news that FIA has called an emergency to put all the recent wrong doings right - I can but dream..!

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.
