I think that we also need external gear shifts, so that we can really see what the drivers are doing.

Can’t be interesting it doesn’t have a V12.

I don't think we'll see V12s back. Shame really, seems like we will get V8s at best, but never mind

I'll give you one thing, at least you are an optimist or is it the stuff you are smoking?

Saturday sprint races are being put forward as though current races are a drawn out slog. Whereas in actual fact they're effectively 3 sprint races strung together.

The sprint races will be more of a MB demonstration than what the GP are!

I don't have an issue with sprint races in theory, but I'm struggling to understand why they're being put forward. I haven't seen any reference to a reason, certainly nothing related to dissatisfaction with the normal qualifying format.

As we have jested in this thread, everyone has their own ideas about what constitutes a pure Formula 1. In principle, sprint races could work as a way to sort out starting places for the big race (it's better than random drawing of lots - remember that?) and provide racing entertainment (entertainment seems to be a goal that has been mentioned - the so-called show).

However, questions will be asked if people end up preferring sprints to Grands Prix. Maybe good questions, though, e.g. do we need less fuel conservation, do we need more pit stops or no pit stops but more durable tyres, or not more durable tyres, but a free choice of compounds. Oh, how this discussion got me going in circles.

Still haven't voted.
