Mercedes steering wheels innovation

Mercedes have developed a system that allows the driver to change the alignment of the front wheels. By pushing and pulling on the steering wheel the front wheels alternate between standard 'toe-out' setting and a much straighter position. https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.tech-insight-have...

How to fix f1. Other things to improve f1. The floor of the car must be the same dimensions of the car. Not a floor that overhangs and comes put to give aerodynamic aid. (Basically hamilton shown the area to ellimimate. It's not needed) Could all cars using the same FIA floor be a possible rule?

Re: The accident aftermath & Eau Rouge / Radillon

But like the Senna accident in 1994 the death itself wasn't caused by the circuit design. Senna was killed by a piece of the front wheel assembly piercing his visor, Hubert was killed by being hit at very high speed by another car and his car being sliced in half.
