    I was quite prophetic when I suggested that grid-girls should drive for double points instead of the real drivers

    would be nice if Mclaren ‘sponsors’ Manor and places Magnussen or Vandoorne in the remaining seat…. wait Mclaren first need to find a decent sponsor themselves :(

    steering wheels would be nice to collect.. although I am afraid they would be very expensive given today’s technology in them

    For me it was Suzuka 1991… did’nt understand much of what was going on with Senna and Berger trading the lead and Senna eventually becoming Champion for the third time.

    I really consider becoming an F1 fan at the start of the 1992 season (my first full season).

    could be a case of daddy buying a seat for his kid (Lance Stroll is a member of the Ferrari Academy, currently racing in Italian F4). The Ferrari ties make the deal quite possible in my opinion, however the kid seems quite fast (currently leading the Championship).

    I have always believed that simple is better. So I would go for simple rules (1 rubber compound per race for example, less complicated aerodynamic devices, No DRS etc).

    Racing should be racing: you have 22 cars on a starting grid, they race (if they feel that they should change tyres during the race, they can, if not so be it,) and whoever crosses the line first wins.

    These complicated rules we have now, can sometimes make racing interesting but they also make it artificial for the knowledgeable fan and complicated for the would-be fans.

    I agree, racing accidents can provide exciting entertainment (provided that nobody is injured, not talking about horrific accidents here).

    Apart from accidents however nowadays (with the current engine freeze) there are even less breakdowns. I remember the early 90’s when some races would be hit with a number of accidents and breakdowns and provide a golden opportunity for the smaller teams to score points.

    I hope that next year, the trend will change.
