Re: How F1 should ultimately be formatted

Sadly I see F1 going the same way as cricket. I love cricket and grew up with and adore test match cricket. However over the years test match cricket has lost interest for the younger generation for whom T20 style cricket seems most popular. T20 for those who don't know is a much shortened slog it a...

I think they should open up turn 1, Sainte-Dévote a little more, seems too pinched in to me.

I also think Monaco should be a mandatory 2 stop race with teams having to run all 3 compounds. I know that's probably not very popular though.
