Formula 1 set to become more entertaining

By Faiming_low on 27 Jan 2017 in Formula 1

Attached Image Liberty Media, which have officially taken over Formula 1, has put Ross Brawn in charge and as the Managing Director, he promises some new changes.

In an interview with the BBC, the man who has worked with Ferrari and Mercedes knows what the fans want.

“We know what fans want. They want entertainment, they want close racing, they want to be able to understand what’s going on,” Brawn said. “And I think everyone agrees on that, I think simplicity is a key objective for the future. I’ve watched F1 for the last few years as a spectator, and there are times where even I haven’t been sure what’s been going on in the race.”

“And it's a great sport, it's a fabulous combination of the drivers and their personalities, their competition, and then the cars and the whole thing. We just need to look at it and see how we are able improve the show.”

He then added on that Formula 1 has been changing its rules too much and believes its the reason fans stop going to the sport.
“F1 tends to be reactive,” Brawn said. “It has a problem; it reacts and tries to find a solution. But (it) very rarely has the vision of looking forward three to five years and deciding where it wants to be.”

“I think (the fans) want racing, and we haven’t seen too much of that. We’ve seen a great competition between two drivers in the same team for the last few years, and that’s no fault of Mercedes. They’ve done a fabulous job. I think the fans want racing, they want to understand what’s going on in the race.”

Expect the changes Brawn wants to happen as early as 2018 or 2019.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

F1 is a blardy waste of time. I hope the night race doesn't return to Singapore!
