First up: the calendar.
For decades the F1 calendar hovered at around 16 races, most in Europe. But Bernie Ecclestone has stated his aim of taking it up to 20 races, with more races in more distant places such as Abu Dhabi and South Korea.
Teams complain that too many races is a financial burden and keeps their employees away from their familiar for too long.
But rival championships such as NASCAR have almost one race per weekend with almost 40 slots on its 2007 schedule – giving it far greater public exposure.
Should the F1 calendar be bigger? Is Ecclestone’s target of 20 races enough?
