A Dutch-commentator/racing driver says if he was in charge, he would skip the SC, when a big accident or something like that happens, he says, let all the drivers drive with a max of 60/80, because when you have a lead of 15seconds, you will lose your gap, I think it's a good thing, what do you think??

As long as they slow down where the crash is its all good. they shouldn't do a full course yellow.
They should also allow the pits straight away on yellow, it's a massive buzz.

maybe they should have to follow the SC, whilst maintaining the gap that there originally was to the driver ahead?

Not a very good idea, IMO. If there's a big crash you have to bunch up the cars, allowing the race marshals to clean up in peace without having to avoid cars spread out all over the track even if they run at low speed. I wouldn't want to be hit by a F1 even if it's only going 60-80 kmph.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

f1 cars need to maintain certain brake/tyre temps aswell as if they arent moving at a quick pace they overheat as the rad inlets are shaped to allow only the right amount of air in to maintain the right water temp

if you drive a f1 car at anything less than quick its REALLY dangerous to drive and we all know what that would mean going into the first corner

driving around in an f1 car at 60/80km is dangerous and will kill those motors in no time

clearly that dutch commentator has no idea of how an f1 car works

He is a famous commentator, who comes up with a lot of ideas. Some of them are already being used by the FIA, some others, like 1 point for pole/fastest lap, so he has more to say then you have, besides he has a better idea of how a F1 car works, that's what I know for sure.

Ferrari will be the team to beat this year. They have the wealth of experience and database information they have on all the other teams, themselves, aero and the tyres they will be difficult to beat.
