As well as that, the F1 personal have families. I don't agree with 'if you can't cope, get out', plenty of them do understand the sacrifices, but I feel F1 is really pushing them too far with the silly amount of races we have now

As I said, reduce a bit of waste and use the savings to employ more staff.

What do you perceive as waste that can be cut ?

Lopping off a couple of races from the schedule could be a nice bit of money saving...

But holding races is what makes them money.Sanctioning fees,tv contracts etc
Guaranteed that 24 number is somewhere in every new tv contract they sign and they will lose money for every race below 24 that they don’t hold.
I think 24 is pushing it for the team members in particular but there’s no way they can go back to 20 even if they wanted to.

The fact of the matter is F1 has become too big for it's boots and as a result we've ended up with way too many races. I'm sure if they could keep costs under control, then they could do with less races

Spot on.

Do you want more races? No.

Do you want less money? Errr....

(A bit like:

Do you want more teams? Sure, no problem.

Do you want less money? Errr....)

Always surprising to see fans saying they want "less" of what they love.

Derwent has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Perhaps quality over quality?
Why on earth should Baku have a GP and not France?

It's the concept of "Too Much". Too much is bad for you. https://youtu.be/XewVicFzRxw

I'm all for more of what I love. Bashing out a load more Grand Prix doesn't achieve this. It actually reduces my love for it.

But it is obvious why they do it. Obviously it generates more income, even if revenue per unit drops the volume will outweigh this. Obvs.

Doesn't mean I'm not turned off by this.
