Three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has supported the idea of a sporting Director Formula 1 Ross Brawn, who yesterday suggested in the course of each season one vneshtatnyy the race.
“The new format, of course, necessary Formula 1, – quotes Hamilton AUTOSPORT. – For 11 years I’ve been playing the championship from Thursday to Sunday is the same.
Considering what became of the car, and now it will be harder to overtake, we have to come up with something new.
Maybe spend some of the Grand Prix different scenario? It might not be so in Monaco is simply not possible to use the same format as the rest of the steps because it’s impossible to overtake. So, maybe, I will have to animate the race and come up with something? For example, to sprint. I do not know. I have a lot of thoughts on this, but I won’t share them with you.
Great that Liberty Media has fresh ideas. I must admit that the potential of Formula 1 from the point of view of a global success far not discovered.
Hopefully, with the help of new owners will be able to realize this potential to the maximum, to bring our sport to the masses.
Don’t know if it will ever achieve the same popularity as football, but to make sport closer to the fans.”
Director Haas Gunther Steiner warned that holding the race nesecitas must be commercially reasonable, not just to have a goal in mind experiment with the rules.
“First of all, I ask the question: “What is the meaning of engagement and what do we get from this?” said Steiner. – Yes, we know how to work the new rules, but there should be a commercial aspect.
Maybe Ross Brawn has a Grand plan to spend vneshtatnyy race like the good old time and collect full stands?
But to hold the race just to experiment with the rules would be very expensive.”
