Aren't you able to defend your position or do you think that merely stating your position is enough? So far, all I'm hearing from you is a load of "I don't like F1 as it is so here are my knee-jerk ideas".
And since you ask, I rather like F1 as it is, so see no need to make radical changes.
Oh, and don't call me mate. Thanks.
I've hit a nerve with you, for that I apologise. You've taken this quite personally and that's not the goal of these discussions. I've continually stated that my opinions and topics are controversial, however my heart is in the right place - which is to ensure F1 is around for all of us to enjoy for many years to come. Ideas are just that and don't have to become a reality.
Personally, I feel you view of 'nothing is wrong with F1' is off the mark and could show evidence where reducing costs, reducing boredom etc are all hot topics in F1 right now - but you're right, you're entitled to your opinion and I respect that.
I will continue to offer up ideas in this thread and so far, I've really enjoyed the ideas and concepts people have put forward. There's a lot of very clever people here who, although they may think nothing is wrong with the sport, they still offer up solutions - which is what this actually thread is all about (we're not debating if F1 should be changed, just options that 'could' help F1). Towards that, I'll not again reply comment to you using my perceived negative approach I think you have and I'll just accept it for what it is - I hope you'll extend me the same courtesy.
