    Default Is F1 getting more boring and/or overrated compared to yesteryear??? 🤔

    To me, it looks like Liberty Media has influenced someone to put a video of such a kind on youtube and the usual controversal people are just good enough to play the part of the advocatus diaboli.
    I've watched all races since many years and built up my opinion.

    boring drivers
    too much electronics

    The last 4 races have - each in quite different ways - been excellent.

    The turnaround point seem to have been the discussions around the Vettel/Hamilton incident which resulted in a overreaction by the stewards. Max versus Leclerc corrected that and now they are allowed to race against each other. There's still a lot of influence of the technic and the tires but Pirelli is opting for longer lasting compounds next years, so the drivers don't have to pussycat the tires around the track. Grown up Mad Max versus old stager Hamilton should guarranty a lot of racing.

    Good man!

    Always looks a well organized event with loads going on supporting the F1 activity.

    I am waiting for the 2020 calendar (hopefully to be r leased in 2-3 weeks time) with a view to booking flights to Hanoi.....turns 7-8-9 look to have great spectating potential.

    We could be looking to do this as well. We went not long after top gear did their bike thing, and loved it.

    Good to know - we'll be looking to split our time between Vietnam and Laos.

    Have you seen that, despite no confirmed date, tickets are available to buy for the Hanoi race Paul? More expensive than Sepang, but a good bit cheaper than Singapore (or Silverstone!!!)
