I'm thankful for the chance for my thoughts to be heard, but that was one of the most frustrating things that I've done in a long time. That survey seemed to really hate my iPad.

I liked the open feedback part at the end of the survey. I just hope that they actually read them, and don't concentrate solely on the graphs they get from other questions.

Gave 'm my two cents, not sure they'll gonna like them though.... (I 'demanded' the return of Road Atlanta, Nurburgring and the addition of Monza for instance.)

The current P2 joker saga more-or-less confirms the ACO have some serious issues managing their 'product' on a bigger stage than LM, seems to me they're trying to 'over-manage' a lot of things instead of letting demand-and-supply taking its course.

Itís a shame, as the series still has life left in it. Weíve got a couple constructors in LMP1 in 2018, so I donít think meddling is really the answer. Keep as it is, with a few changes

Many charts are incorrectly ordered, it's hard to read them.

Of course, why would any TV channel mention the FIA WEC except for a heavy crash? It's a nichť sport, get over it.

It's not a "get over it" situation - it's a recognition that the WEC needs to embrace the smaller outlets more, as they are critical in delivering the product.

Another similar recognition is that although TV is still more popular and streaming, TV is trending downwards whilst streaming is trending upwards. So They need to be sure that their streaming product is improving - right now it's just a bit ropey feeling.

A lot of this report is quite obvious to most of us, but sometimes it seems like the ACO needs reminded of the obvious stuff. Hopefully this will keep things in perspective again.

Asia-Pacific likes LMP1 as much as Europe and NA, but the other categories not as much

They know the good stuff

If Bahrain pay for it and it helps the WEC, I don't see it as a bad thing. Another track somewhere else would be great, but who's offering?

When you look at it that way, I suppose it makes sense.

The simple fact that the WEC is a world championship doesn't make it great - it's a shame the ACO/FIA doesn't have the ambition to combine a bunch of great events/tracks in a championship.

Plenty of possible venues available in winter time that would fit the calendar requirements (mainly good weather). How about Kyalami, Daytona, Sepang, Australia, etc.?

Kyalami probably would've made the cut if Porsche had not pulled out, but now there's no reason for them to want them there unfortunately

(yes I know the GTE team is still there, but that's pennies)
