    @robtsintas Very nice, but how about an object tracking camera like this:

    F1 prides itself on innovation and technology, then why doesn’t the FOM try something really crazy like that.
    Tracking the car around the corners and bumps would reveal much more detail than just high speed cameras alone, but realistically we should consider lucky with just onboards in HD :(

    Fangio’s victory in Germany 1957 has to be the ultimate win of a champion, I don’t know which others where memorable though, bad memory!

    How about this: If the cars do end up being 5 seconds slower, the FIA could reintroduce active suspension it’s a very simple system to develop actually and it definitely has relevance with road cars.
