Alan, the research you cite also said being lacto-ovo-vegetarian or pescatarian was as protective as veganism. At which point, it is quite difficult scientifically to prove that someone was wholly pescatarian vs […]
@ryanoceros They did ask about sprint races, but unfortunately I don’t think they gave any free-text space (having learned from the FIA’s survey in 2010 that fans tend to use it to ask awkward questions they don’t like).
Bob C, bit late for that given Liberty have already issued 2 surveys and been given extremely clear negative feedback.
Sergey Martyn Fans already voted in force against the measures, the majority of fans won’t get to watch quali if it’s on Friday and some fans I know are already boycotting all sprints. Nothing changed.
Two starts at Monza turned out to be a loss for this fan – it made the second start far more predictable than it would have been had the original qualifying order been allowed to stand.
And no, along with most […]
Unfortunately not, because there still wouldn’t be incentive or much opportunity to make a difference. At best, it would be press-to-overtake DRS passing.
@geekzilla9000 Fan polls might be easy to sway to one’s one agenda, but Liberty’s complete failure to do so (despite evidence indicating attempts were made in that direction) shows how harmful fans as a whole […]
The problem with all that is that many fans are finding the current number too many as it is and find the additional sprint races damage every single other session around them (including the race – 400,000 fewer […]
@lancer033 How many of us did that because we were British fans and the British Grand Prix is our one opportunity to see all the sessions live anyhow?
Better than sampling from one live audience event (ignoring all other fan feedback from any source, including the other live audience event) plus one sponsor (which appears to be what happened).
Feedback, from what I can tell, was the aural Silverstone crowd feedback, plus the sponsorship deal.
baasbas, Liberty already ran the survey, initial feedback was overwhelmingly negative, Liberty decided halfway through said survey to impose more sprint events in 2022 regardless. So, we already know how “give a […]
Axel, we’ve already seen a survey that Liberty deliberately ignored. The teams simply haven’t fallen for it this time.
@roger-ayles It’s not just rewards to toe the party line. It’s threats of potentially being force-exited (with a large fine, believed to be at least 8 figures) for breach of Article 151c. Technically, any time […]
@mashiat Given how extreme the situation is, it would probably have to be the next few to have their contract come up, regardless of other factors.
pastaman, I think you’ll find this has become about having a survivable life, not just a pleasant one. There’s a reason most developed countries ban the work rates demanded of F1 even in the 1990s.
S, teams are required by Liberty and the FIA to do what they are doing. As you should have known prior to posting that message.
@flyingferrarim If race counts were restricted, then scarcity of supply increases the chargeable rate.
Partly by increasing the ticket price fans will pay for good seats, leading to an increase in the fee […]
@roger-ayles Teams have the raw staff numbers, but despite the impression that might be obtained from grassroots series, the role is a specialist job. There aren’t enough specialists in order to make rotation […]
The 10-staff rotation currently permitted is to cover sickness and inevitable unscheduled absence.
For this schedule to work, all 40 staff would have to be rotated in a planned way (with the arguable exemption […]
