Clive on FOTA's qualifying brainwave: "The only thing that worries me is the elimination of the slowest driver after only one lap. That seems a bit harsh to me and I would prefer that they be given a few laps to warm up before the times begin to count."
"The racing was bland, personalities were muffled and there was not a compelling reason to watch most races." F1? Nope – NASCAR…
James Allen's final word on ITV: "The team is now disbanded. I know that many people had frustrations with the ad breaks and some found the build-up show’s emphasis on Lewis Hamilton unjustified, but there is no doubt that ITV raised the standard of F1 TV production very high indeed."
"The new idea to be looked at consists of all cars jumping onto the track at the same time and with the same amount of fuel, with the slowest driver being eliminated after each lap. After 14 laps, the six fastest drivers would then fight for pole position, fitting new tyres but still using the same amount of fuel." Once again it seems FOTA is wasting its energy trying to fix something that isn't broken. Qualifying has had more than enough changes in the last five years. The only further change that is needed is to get rid of the race fuel element in Q3. Otherwise, leave it alone.
