I keep bleating on about how Formula 1's technical and sporting regulations need to change if it's to attract a larger and more diverse audience.
We need to remember that you, the people reading this article, are the hardcore fans that will, like me, always watch it - good or bad - because we are addicted to most forms of sport that involve speed!
There's lots of talk about 'fan' surveys, but it's not the likes of us that the changes will be aimed at satisfying. Instead, it's the casual viewers that F1 needs to attract and keep. Until this is done, the viewing figures will keep on trailing away.
