The GPDA Wants YOUR Opinion of F1!

  • The Grand Prix Drivers Association has put up a survey for fans to voice our opinions of what's right and wrong with the sport. Here's our chance to tell them what we've been saying to one another all along!

  • Thanks!

    Seems pretty detailed to me.

    They ask about 'watching F1 with friends'.  While I don't get to the chat as often as I'd like, does that count as watching with friends?  (I count you guys as friends!)

    I second that  :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    The survey itself is pretty detailed and does cover many aspect of F1 many of the problems that its facing.

  • Some of the questions seem a bit irrelevant,  and it is a bit long, especially doing it on your mobile. Having said that I've done it, might be one of the few times fans are asked anything.

  • I was struck by how many of the questions dealt with topics we discussed at length right here. Some of them could have been better phrased. For example, the question about venues. I wish they would have asked about circuits and not just countries. for example, voting for the U.S. & Japan could be taken as voting for Austin & Fuji when I meant Indy & Suzuka.

  • I'll answer this when the GPDA server lets me.

    There's also a F1 Racing survey, which I have managed to answer. "No more than 10 minutes", it said... ...took me 7 hours!

  • Excellent blog as always Alia. I think the question on European races was meant to see if you favored preserving the traditional GPs and venues.

  • (you guys know this survey was put together by FOM, right?  Bernie thinks it will be better received by doing it through the GPDA)

    I wish more of the questions had an option of 'I don't share any of the opinions listed above' 

    For example.  I don't like the SC rules, but they should not be changed to reflect any of those choices. 

    The SC should be on the track to protect the safety of the stranded drivers or personnel who happen to be on track in a dangerous position.  That is not how they currently use the SC in my opinion.

    9. What is your opinion about the current use of the Safety Car? *This question is required.
    The current Safety Car rules are fine and should not be changed
    I don't like the Safety Car periods but understand why they can be needed
    I don't think the Safety Car should be used as it penalizes the Race Leader
    I think the Safety Car should be used more frequently to help bunch up the field
    I don't really have an opinion

  • There's no option to add comments then?  That's a pity, because I would like to add quite a few of my own comments, in addition to answering their questions.

  • Multiple choice surveys nearly always have the questions chosen and worded to produce a predetermined result. This one is no exception.

    The F1 Racing one has a 250-word section where you can add whatever technical/sporting regulation changes you think need doing. I needed a continuation sheet ;)

    Edit: still haven't managed to get the GPDA survey to load. Argh!

    Excellent blog as always Alia. I think the question on European races was meant to see if you favored preserving the traditional GPs and venues.

    Thank you for the explanation. I'd say yes, cautiously. For me, it's the quality of the venue that is most important, rather than where it is located. So a good non-European track would be better than a bad European one (so I prefer Interlagos to Hockenheim) and a good European track is better than a bad non-European track (so I prefer the Red Bull Ring to Sakhir). It happens that at the moment the majority of good F1 circuits are in Europe, but that could change.

  • Isn't it the general perception about F1 with numbers. The stake holders are aware of pretty well. but I wonder will it ever reach to their brain to consider let alone implementation.

    The TV viewer loosing due to move pay channel is alarming to say the least, and I am surprised to see Kimi on top
