Not attending the Singapore Grand Prix gave me the opportunity to look at a Formula 1 weekend from a different perspective.
I was just one of the millions of television viewers worldwide, rather than one of the few on the inside looking out and, I have to say, I wasn't impressed by what I saw. But not for the reasons you might think.
I remember Bernie Ecclestone talking with Eddie Jordan and saying: "Jordan, you know everything that's wrong but nothing that's right." That comment has stuck with me for many years.
