Il futuro della F1

La F1 e’ noiosa ?…costa troppo ?? … era veramente il “pinnacle del motosport ” ??

Probabilmente e’ vero tutto questo, …tanti si annoiano davanti alla Tv in occasione della gare “normali”, lineari, senza Safety car, senza pioggia….quando i piu’ forti partono davanti e non si vede un sorpasso se non ai box in conseguenza dei pitstop….

Quest’anno ci ha lasciati la SuperAuguri….chi sara’ il prossimoTeam a non poter sopportare il problema della ricerca dei denari necessari per magari solo mantenere la baracca in piedi, senza il minimo obiettivo di andare a punti o comunque di ben figurare ??

 Credo che sia arrivato il momento per affrontare entrambi gli argomenti : aumentiamo lo spettacolo e spendiamo meno per garantirlo o comunque abbassiamo notevolmente il budget per rendere un Team competitivo, se non vincente.

E’ il momento di tirar fuori tutte le idee per rivoluzionare la F1, da un lato per avvicinare la F1 ai fans, dall’altro per rendere sempre piu’ appetibile agli sponsor l’investimento.

Come fare tutto questo ???……siete liberi di commentarlo con i vostri suggerimenti….

A presto

5 pensieri su “Il futuro della F1

  1. Ciao Luca,
    che bella idea a creare questo blog.

    Credo che la Formula 1 è già su una buona strada. Il “congelamento” del regolamento tecnico e la limitazione dei giorni di prova aiuta una squadra piccola di risparmiare costi e per trovare la conincidenza con gli altri.

    Le entrate annuale della Formula 1 ammontano a 2,5 miliardi €. A mio parere sarebbe sensato di investire i propri soldi in le nuove squadre e darle un sostegno finanziario. Forse emanare una parte dei costi trasporto per i primi anni in F1? Sicuramente questo potrebbe essere un segnale positivo anche per i potenziali sponsors.

    Poi a me piacerebbe se le squadre avrebbero ancora più spazio per fare una strategia. Penso il ruolo delle gomme (che si deve usare le gomme dure e le gomme morbide durante la gara) dovrebbe essere abolita.

    Il venerdi è diventato abbastanza noioso per noi tifosi. Personalmente ho nostalgia della vecchia F1 con le qualifiche il venerdi e il sabato e con il warmup la domenica.

    PS: spero che il mio italiano è comprensibile.

    Ciao Stefanie

  2. Funnily enough 3 of my colleagues and myself were discussing this only last week at work. (Representing various teams in terms of support (namely Ferrari, McLaren, and Williams), and also a neutral that only watches a few races each year, but would watch more if “there was a bit more racing”). This was after watching the BTCC.

    Our conclusions:

    [1] Get rid of the pedantic little rules that spoil an afternoon’s racing… We want to see wheel to wheel gladiatorial “combat” a-la Prost / Senna, Schumacher / Hill etc without the stewards investigating every little gnat as flies.

    [2] Ban the 2 race engine rule as it’s stifling racing – After 2/3 distance (except for the odd race where something unforeseen has happened) the races almost always become just about pointless as everyone is turning their engines down worrying about getting to the end of the race / next race. It’s not Le Mans (endurance) series, it’s F1.

    [3] [a] If F1 is really serious about being green, then long distance fly-away races should be reduced in number (rather than increased) as jetting teams and associated tons of freight half way round the world more often is far less green than jetting them across Europe – No amount of twig planting (lets face it they’re hardly “trees”), in the business that is known as “carbon offsetting” can make up for this!

    [b] What is the point of fly away races anyway if they’re going to be held at a time to suit the core European audience (i.e. Singapore). Why not hold more races in Europe again (where the core audience is)!? (Or is that too logical?)
    Aren’t all of the diesel powered generators required to power the floodlights – which use enough power to light a small city – very NON-green?
    (On discussion today we all thought that although initially spectacular, Singapore lacked atmosphere due to lack of being able to see spectators during the race – it felt a bit like a computer game – a little bit gimmicky. We also felt that it’s a big part of the season getting up at early o’clock to watch the Asian races – the F1 season wouldn’t be the F1 season without it).

    [4] No race should have a place on the calendar if it has to give away masses of tickets for free (e.g. Bahrain) – especially when there’s venues out there that would sell-out twice over with paying customers if they had a race.

    [5] Ban Tilke … With the exception of Turkey, Tilke tracks provide mostly processional races but with just some fancy looking grandstands. They’re sterile and clinical. They do nothing for the sport in terms of action and racing.

    [6] Reduce the reliance on strategy (sorry about that) – Too often races are decided by the pitwall teams outsmarting each other and not the driver’s own skill – “Is it chess or motor-racing?”(Is the comment made by the neutral).
    Maybe teams should have a set number of pitstops per race, and the strategy is limited to deciding when to take them and which tyres to use when.

    [7] Adopt what other motorsport series do and award one point for pole position and one point for fastest lap, in addition to the current points system. (Could benefit Ferrari that one!)

    [8] Make the sport more accessible to the fans … Have a set time at each race weekend where the fans can queue for autographs from and photos with their favourite driver (see BTCC), without having to have expensive hospitality tickets to get access to the centre of the circuit (and even then no access to the Paddock). It’s currently too much of a business and too much geared to the luxury of business guests (most of whom attend just to be seen and aren’t in the slightest bit interested in what’s happening on the track). The real fans are being alienated.

    [9] (Controversial one, but) Ban sponsorship of individual teams. Instead companies can sponsor a race / races or the racing series. Half of the money they put in is then split evenly between the teams, with the other half then being split at the end of the season according to points scored…. Fairer distribution of the wealth should see closer racing plus better survival chance for the minnow teams….

    General consensus is that F1 seems to have lost sight somewhat of what it is (should be sport first, business second – not the other way around) and who it’s aimed at (should be the fans, instead of pandering to the wants of corporate hospitality and corporate sponsors) Money should not rule the major decision making (e.g. like race venues etc)… F1 should take a look at other more “fan-friendly” forms of motor-racing and learn.

    Probably all sounds a bit controversial, but as now is the time that the teams are starting to meet to decide the new Concorde Agreement, now is perhaps the time that the fans voices should be heard (and hopefully listened to) 🙂

  3. Thanks Hanna

    appreciate your and your friends comments…some thoughts :
    1- I agree but too many interest now…we need stronger and easier rules
    2-Cost reduction
    3-been green in motorsport sound to me a bit like a joke…
    5- I agree…tilke needs to think about is drawing pen..
    6-The actual f1 without strategy play will be a disaster in term of show so…need to be carefull
    8-This is another point where we are working on…
    9-I dont think this idea will reach a lot of support to be honest..

    ciao and…thanks a lot again

  4. Sigh – Another great race circuit bites the dust! I see that Canada has now been removed from next year’s calendar.
    (Can’t possibly have a race at a venue which usually produces a great race – that wouldn’t be in keeping with Bernie’s master plan!)

    I think the teams should get together, ditch the FIA and Bernie, and set up their own racing series.
