    Better late than never I suppose but it’s all been done before and in a more globally inclusive way.

    Mandating a different WDC and WCC every x number of years would increase diversity.
    As would enforcing all drivers get a shot at a competitive car and vice versa.

    Why does LH have 6 WDC's and Merc 6 WCC's when Alonso and Ferrari are as good or better.

    Seriously, keep it simple and Keep It (a) Sport.
    We don't need no ... entertainment.

    Amen.

    I’ve been saying this since the advent of the ridiculous tire regulations. The tire manufacturers can build a tire that will go a full race distance. The only reasons for a pit stop should be for a mechanical problem, swapping wet/inter/dry compounds or for a penalty.

    Timing!

    Lewis, whether lucky or shrewd, made better moves are more optimal points in time.

    Neither refueling nor mandated tire changed adds to the racing.
    And then there is that silly pit-speed-limit thing.

    I like different strategies but it should be up to each team.

    mid you want to stop 5 times for tires and fuel because that is the fastest result for you car... go for it.

    If you want to fill it to the brim,... put on hard tires,... and run a no stop strategy... go for it.

    It should be about finishing the mandated distance in the shortest time.

    it’s the mandating different compounds that is just silly.

    Pirelli should offer 5 dry weather compounds for the season. The teams should run whatever they want.
