In the FIA official press conference prior to the Austrian GP you asked for the fans to come together and let you know how they would improve F1. So I asked my Twitter followers and Facebook 'likers' to see how the Formula One fans would like to see the sport changed. The responses are wide and varied so I have listed them below. I hope that some of this helps and gives you an idea of the thoughts of the public.
- Reduce F1 to a 2 day weekend format but with 25 race weekends a year? Include a sprint race on a saturday?
- Bring back fat tyres & skinny wings - decrease the reliance on aerodynamics (should make it easier to follow in the wake of another car)
- Use the free F1 app to include in-race poll's on events and incidents, display results in world feed
- Make the whole contents of the F1 app free, a paid version should just be to get rid of ads. It needs to be free for fans to keep up with the sport.
- Where it is not possible to have free-to-air coverage, allow free to air full replays of races
- Why is there not an active F1 official tweeter at all events, catching sneaky photos from the pitlane or the stewards office etc, it'd gain millions of followers and be a great platform to promote official F1 partnerships etc
- Allow fans better access at race weekends? Make drivers more available to the public
