Re: How many Grands Prix have you attended?

Been to Adelaide 93, 94, 95 Awesome event with non stop on track/air action and those screaming v12 Ferrari’s of 95 where unreal. Being so long ago it did lack some big screens that are everywhere now and you did miss some action. The race was quite hard to follow as the cars were so loud. The track...

Re: How to make Monaco more exciting?

Nothing but sour grapes from Hamilton and Alonso. Never heard them complain when they won at Monaco in the past. Hamilton has won dozens of boring races like Spain 2018 which was worse than Monaco IMO. The thing is, if a car was 100 plus hp down at Spain, he would be passed without question. Yes. I...

I'm looking forward to next season because we are constantly hearing how easy the current cars are to drive physically.

The whole fuel flow restrictions does my head in. They all start with the same amount of fuel anyway, why not let them control there own fuel rates?. It will bring more passing and strategy.

Short answer No. They had to do something because there was • not enough passing on track. • cars where far to aero sensitive to follow close enough to pass. • gp's where becoming predictable.
