I am a firm believer that public opinion with regards to how we {the paying public) see the racing i.e.if it`s not exciting, boring etc. are listened to. We may not get the oppertunity to speak directly to F1 heirachy but i am convinced that what is written on forums, blogs, magazine letters are fed back and acted on all be it much later than we would like.

i agree...
but, it is not hard to realize when a race (or a season) is boring.
And they are continuously changing the rules to avoid it.

Drivers read articles written on the Internet. Maybe not the top ones, but most do. Same with team principals. They'll read, most probably, Twitter comments and Autosport's forum, even ours possibly. I know some of the guys at Haymarket publishing were looking at our news site.

It may take 3 or 4 steps to reach the top, but the Internet has revolutionised motor racing and given fans a voice that, until possibly the mid-00s, they didn't have.

I'd say they did have a voice before then, albeit limited, through the publication of comments in magazines and (sometimes) newspapers. However the internet has made it much easier for fans to share their thoughts, and I agree that this revolutioned motor racing and given them a much stronger voice.

in fact, all 'business to customer' communications were deeply improved by internet.

People's letters in magazine comments are often hilarious though. I saw once shouting for Lewis to be banned following Silverstone, where he and Massa had that great last lap scrap.
