Other sports manage okay, why not F1. And this person only needs to control the financial aspects, the rules and politics are handled by the FIA.

Spoiler:
Bernie Ecclestone’s contribution to the debate over what should be done to improve racing in F1 is another one of his wind-ups:

Imagine a shortcut which a driver can use five times every race. It would stop people getting stuck behind others. It would be good for TV.
Bernie Ecclestone

We’ve had similar ‘ideas’ from Ecclestone before, not least the ‘Gold medals’ plan which was hastily introduced then dropped last year. His ’shortcuts’ brainwave, reported by Reuters, will surely not be taken seriously.

Unfortunately it may serve to make some of the other poor ideas for “improving the show” hinted at by Stefano Domenicali earlier today seem more palatable.

Predictably Ecclestone didn’t have anything to say about the kind of innovations F1 fans really want to see – like broadcasting more team radio and the long-overdue arrival of HD coverage.

It’s all well and good for those of us who know not to take this kind of thing seriously. But tonight and tomorrow there will be a lot of headlines about the latest crazy, contrived changes being cooked up by F1’s boss.

And that will do the sport’s image no good at all.


imagine a shortcut throught the water surrounding Monaco. :lol: .it is laughable :rofl:



Safety car comes in with 2 laps to go and Trulli whos in 8th place has 1 more shortcut left. He cuts the chicane and goes up to 1st and wins
:lol: :lol:

or it could work in the opposite way. Trulli is coming first but he has that long train behind him. he doesnt have a shortcut, but the others do have, all of them use it and he ends up coming last :lol:

If that happens, everyone will use the shortcut in the first 5 laps. Worst idea ever.

Red Bull:

In Montreal for Showcar Run. It's not as cold as it should be The ice run may be cancelled if the ice ain't thick enough... gulp!
The test to see if we can run? Send a lorry out on to the ice. If it doesn't come back, we're not driving.
