    Formula 1 is in a period of intense work to shake things up for 2021, but that won't be easy. Several fundamental problems that F1 chiefs need to tackle can be traced back to bad decisions taken in the past, when those in control weren't always thinking about what was best for F1's long-term future. Can these issues be fixed in time for the promised 2021 revolution?

Banning aero and data monitoring will remove 90% of the problems and promote proper racing.

Also what doesn't need to happen is expanding the grid to more manufacturers/organisations, just to have them financially struggle or at least not compete and become B teams.

The bottom line is - stand by for my getting pelters - that F1 has become boring and predictable. When overtaking and position changes have to be engineered by DRS (remember the good old days of 'non-movable aerodynamic devices'?) and by pit stops occasioned by tyres deliberately designed not to last the full length of a race, something in the model is deeply flawed. The bottom line is that you will see closer and more exciting racing at any local club event. And don't get me started on the bland, Hermann Tilke-designed circuits. F1 IMHO has no natural right to survive. I am a lifelong motor sport enthusiast and have tried to be tolerant and supportive of F1 through its ups and downs. But we have reached the point where we have an expensive, multi-coloured and largely predictable procession most 'race' weekends. Something has to change.

The biggest problem is data. During the actual race, the only data from the car to the pit should be the simple transponder indicating track position. There shouldn't be any pit to driver radio, either. Once the race starts, all of the strategy should be in the driver's hands.

The real main issues: 1. outrageously priced engines as the only option (small teams struggle to survive, no diversity, impossible to win as a privateer) 2. spec tires made by an incompetent company (can't push, have to conserve, setup compromises) 3. no refueling (leads to heavier, bigger cars, more tire wear, more predictable strategy as 1 stop is almost always best) 4. mandatory reliability (makes races incredibly predictable, no one ever breaks down) 5. excessive downforce (can't follow, can't pass without DRS) All of these have destroyed the racing in their own way. You don't need gimmicks, reverse grids, a lack of tech, any of that. Just remove these things that have obviously ruined the racing, strategy, and unpredictability of F1.

All sports are arbitrary. Something that someone made up initially, and that evolved over time. There's no reason why F1 couldn't change the rules to whatever is necessary in order to improve the fan experience, but that's not what it's really all about to the people who are in positions of influence over the sport.

I have followed f1 for a very long time, and I feel that it has obviously become a spec-racing series, devoid of actual innovation and interesting variety. You may this hard to fathom, but there was a time when some cars could out brake, out corner, out run, or out last their competitors. Also, astonishingly, some cars were better on different courses, or under different weather conditions. Obviously, driver skills were quite important as well. This very complicated situation led to an activity called "racing", and I vaguely recall some fairly talented drivers and apparently semiskilled engineers who had some success in those ancient times. Should we look to the fabled past of le Grand Prix? Nah, let's just put more graphics on screen...that will fix f1 100%.....

I started following F1 very seriously in 2002. The downward spiral that I have seen over the past 18 years is insane. But it doesn’t surprise me, as the FIA and the EU are corrupt corporate conglomerates that want power and control. The ban on tobacco advertising did set off a chain reaction of bad things which still have an impact on teams today. Get woke, go broke. F1 has gotten rid of the v10’s, the v8’s, tobacco advertising, grid girls, efficient pussified “power units” that are quieter than my vacuum, green this green that all to satisfy the minority of people in f1, not the majority.

The solution to F1 woes is really a simple thing to solve, and here it is. The car that has won the prior season championship, becomes offered as a base platform to all teams, excluding its power unit. This would enable teams with deep pockets to nolonger leave less financially stacked teams in the dust , as teams would at least have a car that is proven to compete at the front of the pack. It also would push the team of that then winning car to further up the ante in their engineering since they would be up against their own creation in the hands of the other teams, or at least those that has taken the base platform. It also means the technologies of that past season car will be known to rival teams, making their stay at the top even more challenging. Teams accepting the platform would be allowed to further engineer the car, possible doing better than its original creators. All this would level out the playing field, in the least narrowing the margins between the fastest and the slowest cars on the grid. And it also avoid the issue of spec cars, since the power plant of that original winning platform is not used by other teams. And yes im well aware that teams already adopt techniques used by other teams, but those who have the bank to engineer it into their cars along with further enhancements are those teams with deep pockets. why my idea proposes is that poorer teams can opt with a proven base plateform which would enable their moneys spent to go much much further, and as a result the ability to compete. essentially the base platform is a handicap platform mostly for bottom tier teams.

First change should be to stop making them use two tyre compounds in a race. They should choose one compound before qualifying and stick to that. Use a faster tyre and qualify up front, but make an extra pit stop, Qualify lower on a harder tyre and make less stops. Secondly, get rid of the run off areas in favour of gravel traps, or water traps. If a driver makes a mistake, they should be punished for it, not be allowed to drive off the track. Gravel traps would stop the car, a water trap would cool their tyres and give them major problems when they get back. Either would punish them for running off track and would make for mixed results. Thirdly and probably the most controversial would be a return to manual stick shift gearboxes. Most European drivers prefer them in road cars anyway, so not really a basis to argue that it would have no benefit to road cars to produce them in F1. It would reduce costs, and most importantly would increase overtaking as when manual stick shifts were last used in F1, most drivers would make a number of missed gear changes resulting in them getting passed.

Allow other engines, get rid of the artificial stuff like DRS and fast degrading tires and mandatory tire changes, don't bring back refuelling, loosen the rules to make more loopholes. The grid will always be lopsided, always has been, always will be, but with looser rules sometimes a budget team can come up with an innovation and move up.

I feel like the aero can be standardized and smooth red out and still be powerful whilst producing good racing. Stickier and more durable tires means better racing as well. Complex suspensions of today aren’t really taking away from racing and in fact they help ameliorate tire wear and enhance chasing another car. I disagree with data involvement. With a finance cap, everyone will have the best preparation for a race. In fact, Williams and Renault have the most advanced AI involved in car development and strategy and they aren’t doing good. If F1 wants to be the pinnacle of innovation, technology, automotive industry, it must incorporate more data. In fact, data and scenario-prepared models actually led to Lewis sliding at Turn 16 on the wrong tire in those wet conditions at Hockenheim. Same data helped him win in Hungary. AI-involved car design led to Williams designing a car that was slower than 2016 in Australia. So don’t antagonize the role of data. Let it be relevant to the future

F1 is not about fans and being a "show piece" for supporters. WOW - what a statement but before you break your nails on your keyboard to tell me to bugga-off, think about it carefully. From DAY ONE, F1 was about engineers building a race car to challenge the world. These engineers did not necessarily come from auto manufactures, but was built by petrol heads in their back yards and then go challenge who ever thought they could build something better. The basic rules applied where simple. take an engine, gearbox, build a chassis to seat ONE DRIVER, add a wheel on each of the four corners then find a track to challenge distance against time or another competitor. Over the years, media and the likes of Bernie Ecclestone turned this "sport" into a money making circus. After 1980, F1 has been challenged by media hypes, "fans", and money greedy individuals and what was a simple basic set of rules (hence the reference to FORMULA ONE, and not FORMULA COMPLICATED) In my racing days, I had ONE helper, fixed the car MYSELF, swapped race overalls for mechanic overalls, could AFFORD the effort using money from my day job, raced on weekends and HAD FUN. Today, I meet race drivers, who have no idea how to check for a simple power loss whilst stranded next to the track saying " I just driver the thing, have no idea why the engine died ................" Yip, its simple buddy, you OUT OF FUEL ...................

I love technology as much as anyone, but I more longer recognize the cars. They seem to be driver pods surrounded by hundreds of obtuse angles and assorted sharp edges, with some tires hung off the corners to add interest.

Two simple decisions that I believe would improve the overall racing experience. First make it mandatory that each car stop twice for tires. This would drive the strategists crazy and to further add to the excitement. Make it mandatory that one set of those tires be used in the next race. No computer simulation could forecast the outcome or longevity of a used set of tires on another circuit. Second, redesign the circuit corners. Make corners wider which would allow for different apexes and more out braking/passing without risking a collision. Unless collisions sell more tickets.

Now, we all know that a team is a team when everyone is working for the benefit of " the team". The rules. Heights, length, width, weight. Al the other rules out of the window. If a team want to have 500 or 2 cylinder, fine. The best? The survival of the fittest? The cart and the driver are the two components a team needs, one without the other doesn't work.
