How about going back to the six tyres that was tried for a short time?

That should sort out the front tyre grip problem during overtaking.

That is very nice indeed. Great to have variation in paint jobs across the grid.

That said, it's a shame we'll be losing the Lotus black and gold. The E21 for example was a very nice looking car:

As an aside, I actually think they did such a nice job with the stepped nose on that that it actually enchanced the look of the car.

I don't disagree but it's still a beaut. Hopefully the cars this coming season will look nice.

I want refueling back too, freshens up qualifying and impacts strategies, allowing teams with slower cars to punch above their weight.
Yes?

I think the idea is that there has to be a caution every 20 minutes at most so they can fit in some adverts.

I think it means as soon as the race starts the clocks counts down to 0 then there is caution unless there is a crash which resets the clock :dread:

I found this on it still confusing as strawberry float imo :fp:
As outlined by NASCAR executive Steve O’Donnell, a “caution clock” will count down from 20:00 as teams take the green flag to start each race. If a caution doesn’t occur naturally by 00:00 on the clock, NASCAR will display the yellow caution flag and teams will pit as they always have. The clock will be reset to 20:00 when the race begins, and again count down to 00:00 -- barring another “natural” caution. The 20-minute intervals will continue with every restart until the race “window” is clearly inside 20 minutes.

Monza to dump Curva Grande for a new chicane this has to be one of the dumbest ideas in Motorsport in recent times. :fp:

Image

Gianlu D'Alessandro ‏@Gianludale27
New layout for Monza. Probably there will be a new chicane (yellow line) with an elevation change of 2,5m #Gazzetta

It seems Vettel has already tried the new chicane (maybe at the simulator? ): according to him would be very difficult to get the right trajectory (for the elevation change of 2,5m), but his impressions of the new chinace would be very positive #Vettel [#Monza

Whiting would have already approved the new chicane (also for LMP1 cars). Ecclestone, instead, wouldn't like the layout change | #Monza


Opinion's?

What a pointless idea not needed it will ruin Monza IMO its a shame Silverstone's layout is crap so is Spa doing this to Monza will be a big nail in the coffin for F1 a change to classic venue which is not needed :dread: :dread: :fp:

Absolutely ridiculous, the cars hairing round that last bend on the end of the track and then flying down the straight flat out is a hallmark of the brilliant Monza track.
