Former Formula 1 driver Alex Zanardi believes that the new owners Liberty Media needs to make the drivers had freedom of action on the track and once again become the main participants of the show.
“Formula 1 has become a bit boring. Now the main stars are the stewards, – said the 50-year-old Italian in an interview with La Gazzetta Dello Sport. – We all remember my overtaking in the “Corkscrew” at Laguna Seca-1996 [CART race]. In F1 such a maneuver now would be impossible, because the racing Directorate would be immediately fined.
Changed how rules and machines. In the 90 motor and tyres really allow riders to show what they’re capable of. Many pilots of my generation were the real aces. But today they would be regularly punished for risky overtaking and dangerous driving style.
Modern pilots are afraid of fines and don’t want to risk that has a negative impact on the entertainment races”.
