F1 is another dimension in terms of media. For people who don’t know that much about racing, many think it’s the only thing. But in terms of racing, F1 isn’t what it used to be anymore. There’s not much grip from the tires and not much downforce in the corners. You can’t go flat out. The F1 paddock is very empty. Just the teams and a few VIPs. But for sure, if they want to please the fans more, it’s not the ideal way.
