    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?

I used to be a rabid F1 fan. No longer... it's become a video game. The cars used to shriek. Now, it's about electronic gizmos instead of driver skill. Go back to what works- a simple, sleek race car with a loud, powerful engine and a driver with desire and skill. Let the chips fall where they may. Otherwise, you might as well have driver-less cars.

Bunch of primadonnas is f1s prblm. Racing decided by race strategy by 3 or 4 teams competing for a championship. And 4 or 5 teams who hv no chance in hell of winning a podium spot, much less a win. It's not racing, its driving fast on a closed road.

I already know what to do. Make it an open wheel thing. Except for common car dimensions and those stupid winglets poping out. No KERS, DRS, TC & Smaller engines. That's it!

Only allow the equivalent of soft and super soft tires. F1 is basically a sprint race, might as well go as fast as possible. Bring refueling back so cars can have a smaller fuel tank and possibly have more room for new innovation in energy recovery storage. More power unit allotment so they can push instead of nursing 3 or 4 engines for the year. Fair share of the wealth and manufacturers/vendors makes a happy partnership and customers/fans!

One thing that would increase the number of cars on the grid is if teams can run aftermarket chassis. The fact that a team has to design and build a car from scratch is very, very expensive. In the golden era you could buy a Lola chassis and stick an engine in there and off you went. They would often have 40+ cars turn up at a Grand Prix.

If we want genuine racing we need car in a box with rules on engine size and safety being the only prescriptive stuff. That way each team would have different advantages on different tracks

F1;s big problem is it needed to make changes 10 years ago. or longer. Ban telemetry, no safety car unless its essential. Remember when abandoned cars just sat by the fence on the grass until the end of the race?

"Power units"? I don't follow F1 too closely, but it seems pretty obvious to me that it's beyond saving if someone can utter the phrase "power unit" and not be immediately fired.

The biggest issue for me is lack of specialization for the car designs. I want a season where a small team goes full on no-downforce and beat the top teams on that one grand prix, but doesn't do anything the rest of the season, while an other one goes for way too much downforce and dominates an other GP but also doesn't do much the rest of the season. A team going for ultra-aggressive strategies, super fast but 3 pits per race, an other going for endurance and being slower but beating everyone in a race where tire degradation is a huge issue for everyone but them. The only one that can be said to be close to this are Honda-powered cars and their "my engine last 2 GPs" philosophy and thanks to that sometime RedBull managed to reach Mercedes and Ferraris' paces : that's what I want to see. Right now F1 is one sided : even the "RedBull has more downforce than everyone, Force India has less" isn't true any more, it's just the Mercedes, Ferrari and maybe twice a year RedBull doing something, everybody else is strictly inferior in every way. Add back some design freedom, more tire compounds (yes I want a tire that last the entire race but is slow and a tire that is super fast but last 2 laps, let team pick different strategies !), maybe less wings per year as they've already put rules for engines so that a team can't have a perfect Monaco setup AND a perfect Monza setup. That's what F1 needs, to go into a race weekend thinking "this time, out of the mid to low tier teams, who's gonna be the overly-specialized one that outperform the generalized top teams ?" and break this "without knowing what the track is about, the condition, the potential accidents, I can already tell who's gonna win".

biggest problem for F1 will happen in about 20 years just like boxing when a sport ends up on pay to watch TV the fans dwindle and when the new generation is ready to watch the sport ,they have no interest and simply move away and watch something else just like boxing 30 years ago , pay to watch was all the rage but the new generation didn't follow it and suddenly when the new generation was expected to take over the old generation their was no money left in boxing even today most people cannot name more than 2 boxing world champions and yet we must have hundreds in the not too distant future F1 will be wondering why the race tracks are empty ,and where the fans are and why has the money dried up its easy if you don't let people watch your sport they will simply move to something else

From being a mad-keen F1 fan as a kid and teenager, the first rule change I remember thinking was a retrograde step was when they brought in the grooved tyres in the '90's - but getting rid of the proper engines was what killed off any enjoyment I got out of following F1. I watched the first couple of seasons of the hybrid stuff, but they sounded crap, and it was all about managing this and that instead of racing and I realised I was just watching a procession; the 'racing' I used to enjoy watching was a thing of the past and I just didn't care what happened in F1 anymore.

Bad decisions? 1: DRS - Fake overtaking, remove it 2: Pirelli 'cheese' tyres, time to let a 2nd tyre manufacturer into F1 again 3: Merc cheating, Merc were stuck in the midfield until their illegal tyre tests in 2013, when after that they leapt to the front. investigate and fine/ban them 4: Bring Bernie back, all the decisions by Liberty have been shameful 5: Ban these garbage Hybrid V6 engines. Go back to V8/V10

I think the monsters from the 80s should return. I'd like to see a 1000hp ground effect machine. Also they need to simplify the aerodynamics and engines as well. I guess twin turbo V6 or V8 should do the trick. Please remove the DRS and complex regeneration systems and make more robbust tires, fans want to see speed overtakes and of course drama!

A lot of these points are completely subjective and aren't followed by any real reasoning. I'm also for change and better racing, but there's a reason we love F1. It's not all f*cked up. That said, the tires really do need a change.

reverse order of starting? Are you/ they mad? If that is applied, no one will do their best during Qualifying because coming in Last would be the best result there is. So they go out at the beginning and just stop, and whose fuel runs out last is the top starter...

Formula 1 now is just a huge predictable corporate business that just happens to go racing every couple of weeks in between. Too many backhanders at the top and not enough money for the lower tier teams and so the whole setup just replicates our own super rich society vs the poor strugglers. They need to slice up that big pie in a better way to make a long term impact but I can't see it happening.

Thing is F1 has always been about the best team and driver package and coming first. The problem is too much emphasis on Aero. Strip it back and increase mechanical grip.

When a car is so high tech all you need is a good AI to drive it and you will get the same results as the last few seasons. I want to see races where the driver's skills are the deciding factor. Yes engine has an effect and so does suspension, but it seems the driver just steers the car now. Where is the local dirt track? they are more entertaining.

F1 needs neutering by ridding itself of corporate manufacturers and bring the human element back into team ownership. Including chassis and engines. And ban principal sponsorship. Then bring back as many standardised parts as possible, like turbos, lighter cars narrower tyres ground effect. And less stadium tracks. Special events like race of champions and hill limbs.

As an American F1 really means nothing to me. But like Nascar they have become to big and expensive for average people to care anymore. I believe we will see them all fail because of this and smaller racing will come back. Just a thought from the out side.

How about having refueling return, but in qualifying the drivers have to run with the fuel that they're going to start the race with? I don't know what the minimum amount should be to make it interesting, but maybe 40 - 50 litres to start with for those that want a faster go at the beginning, but also give anyone the chance to full-tank it.

I might be crazy, but two big things I think would help are a return to only counting the best 10 or so scores towards your point total, so it’s harder to take an insurmountable lead early (and it gives and advantage to more “on the limit” driving and engineering as you can get away with mistakes as long as sometimes the risks pay off big) and randomizing variable conditions at races, having things like water cannons that might go off so the data and preparation advantages are mitigated. Not realistic, but it would work, and that shows how much of a hole the sport is in

I couldn't agree more, especially about the 'power units'. These hybrid-turbo engines have been so incredibly expensive to develop they have no doubt put off manufacturers from attempting to compete in F1 rather than bringing in more car companies (which is why we were told F1 had to ditch normally aspirated engines). It's the same story in LMP1 sportscars by the way.
