    What can we do to make F1 more interesting?

    I'll start us off......

    1. We keep hearing that there is so much down force generated by an F1 car that they can drive upside down, well prove it then. Make us a track with a barrel roll.

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    Make the top team from the year provide a specific amount of staff and funds to the last team for the winter period to help close the field.

    Remove all the rules except the safety ones.
    Set the maximum width and length of the car and let them go for anything that works.
    Add a change to the points scoring so that you get a point if you lead the GP at any stage for at least one whole lap.
    Let the teams make they're cars as different as they want and choose their tyre makers.

    Basically back to how it used to be.....

    Just have one rule:

    Everything to do with the team, car, support equipment etc must fit inside a standard sized shipping container.

    Other than that you can do what you like.

    More seriously, 2 main things for me:

    1) Bring back ground effect to some extent to reduce the aero penalty from closely following another car

    2) Seeing drivers crippled by having to conserve fuel is daft in my view. Change the rules so they can attack all the time

    Correct me if I'm wrong but half the problem on this point is down to the teams their selves as they always tend to under fuel the cars to save weight, banking on there being a safety car or something.

    I think that's correct, maybe the weight of fuel at the start of a race should be set.

    What about, a reverse grid, like in touring cars?

    You'd need to give points for qualifying but why don't we reverse the top 10? You'd also have to give the same points as a race win for pole, otherwise everyone would want to qualify 10th in Monaco !

    The problem with F1 is that its supposed to be an engineering pinnacle. So you either derestrict and the richest team who can afford the best engineers wins, or you restrict, racing gets more equal but innovation reduces.

    I think the issue is money. I'd change so that F1 money was split equally amongst teams, and maybe even a bonus for new teams for the first 5 years. Then restrict the amount of money a team can add to that budget.

    My other half suggests having all the even numbers go round clockwise and all the odd numbers anti-clockwise. Hmmmm.
