Probably more double points finishes and spsrky cars then.

The amount of money FOM charges race promotors and hense the fans has nothing to do with it I assume..........

SWCRacing has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Just being pedantic, but FOM don't charge race promoters anything! Formula One World Championship Limited charge the hosting fees and take all FOM then get paid to produce the live feed, transport the teams etc....

Anyway, back to the thread.... Hahahahahahahahahha. Pointless and reactionary BS from the poisoned undertall one!! And inviting briatore to be part of it....

Dieter Zetsche want F1 to have somebody in charge of markrting F1 rather than Bernie doing everything. He wants digital marketing to be a part of it. At least there are people involved in F1 that seem to think digital media can be used as a marketing tool not like its boss.

He might just be the person for the job, as much as my initial reaction was to scoff at the idea....

So not headed by Flav but he'll be involved somehow. I reckon that's a good move - he always looked at the sport with a fresh set of eyes and from a marketing perspective.

He's not the person to run a racing team but in terms of how the sport shows itself to the world, he'd have some pretty radical ideas most likely.

"A couple of guys will sit together [to work out what to do], because it's difficult to do when you invite everybody and come up with priorities and solutions," said Wolff.
"We'll probably get you guys involved to avoid the situation last time when you found our ideas really s***! So that's the procedure."

Oh well, Toto has got the message!

Don't expect the ideas to be any good though!

Get the wings off, lose KERS, use racing tyres, and go at it, FF on steroids would be hugely popular!


"But by spreading negativity around we distract people from being passionate and watching us, and actually we stop people who could be potentially interested to watch because we are negative.

The reason people are negative about your ideas mate, are they as described by Toto and have nothing to do with improving the racing!

The premier league should award double points for the last round, "it would improve the show."

Get rid of DRS, bring gravel traps back, make the cars wide again, widen the rear tyres by X amount, half the ticket prices.

There you go Flavio, i've just saved you all that work, you can go back to laying about on your yacht now.

Flavio? Popularity group? Fantastic!
We will see lots of half naked models on the grid and around the pits. That will definitely raise F1's popularity!!

Flavio has had some good ideas in the past. A dreadful man, but a bright man.

The concept of a popularity working group fills me with dread though. Pretty much a death sentence to F1.

A Popularity Working Group... You can just smell the passion, can't you?

I wonder if there is a Working Group Working Group to oversee all the Working Groups.

Isn't bringing in a man who was responsible for fixing a race to improve popularity not a potentially counter-intuitive move?

I can't help but think reverse grid races might be on the cards

I think Flavio's a clown (that's the most polite word I could think of with that initial letter).
This is further indication that F1 is becoming less of a technically challenging sport and more like WWF.
I suppose I'll have to console my self with the fact that at least I've been able to enjoy a lot of it since I started watching in the early 60's.
(At my age I was beginning to think it about time that I got another hobby anyway).

I can't believe that I'm seeing a sport I've loved is becoming unwatchable. This new group won't achieve anything unless they ask the fans. And please Flav, no more thong pictures!
