The whole cookie issue needs sorting (in general, not specifically on F1T). There ought to be a simple option in the browser that says "no non-essential cookies" like we have "no tracking" or "no ads". When one looks at some of the so-called essential cookies required by some site - looking at Formula1.com, for example - there are cookies for cruise lines. Why is that essential to the functioning of a website?
The EU was right to try to control cookies, they just need to get on top of it properly so that the users don't have to constantly tick boxes and scroll through cookie options.
Sorry, rant over.
If you are more fortunate than others, build a larger table not a taller fence.
