This week's media statement from the Formula One Promoters' Association (FOTA) criticising Liberty Media for its running of the championship has fuelled the debate about whether F1's chiefs are doing a good enough job.
A quick glance on social media shows there are fans who remain enthralled and full of excitement for the on-track battles ahead. Then there are those who are more unhappy about modern F1.
There are debates about the lack of action on the track, concern about the gulf between the top three teams and the rest, F1's falling income, declining viewer numbers in some markets because of the pay TV switch and uncertainty about what is really going to change from 2021. Amid that, it is all too easy to think that F1 has been cut loose and is lost at sea.
