If the tweaks don't work then Ross and co know they will need to implement more significant changes for 2021.

I am convinced that a simpler regs which cost less will attract new entrants.

Part of the reason there aren't any new teams at present is because of the performance and I suspect political clout Merc has.

FIA should publish the regs that are required to reduce cost and better racing and if certain entities don't like it too bad.
Better called fundamentals.

Or reduce the ability to manage the cars so well that mistakes are rare. Let them build what they want but make it difficult to utilise the whole sum of the technology so they have to make real choices.

In the end the next sixty pages will replicate the first sixty.

Zac Brown believes that F1 is broken and that Liberty need to stick to their proposed 2021 reforms, and ignore Ferrari and Mercedes.

http://www.f1reader.com/list/news/GP...mclaren-214876

"We know change in F1 is difficult, and we also know F1 today is a broken model, both as a business and as an on-track product, that is going to need to be changed," Brown is quoted by Autosport.

"Those that are winning today will obviously feel the compromise about what is happening, and those are not winning today are going to like the plan." Zac Brown

Well he would say that, but at least he is honest when he says those who are winning donít want change and those that arenít do. But heís right when he says that change is necessary to fix the broken product

FIA should call Merc and Ferraris bluff and just publish new regs. There will be plenty of interested parties!

What other sport let's the competitors help decide the rules? Maybe some advise them of the rules, but that's about it
