The first question anyone who knows I have an interest in Formula 1 asks is, 'Will 2018 be better than last season'?
My answer is very simple: why would it be? The people that can do something about the show have done nothing, and unless you are into the razzmatazz of pre- or post-event functions, I'm not sure I see any significant change on the horizon.
Formula 1 is not a sport. It is a huge business that brings employment to tens of thousands of people, whether they are working for a team or in the supply chain industry. If only because of this, it needs to be attractive to the viewer and the enthusiast otherwise the result is simple. People will switch off and more sponsors will move on, leading to a reduction in revenue that will drive teams away from the sport because either their return on investment is inadequate or they can't make ends meet.
