As reported on

Formula One fans think the sport is more exciting this year thanks to the return of tyre changes and the revised qualifying format. That is the result of the latest FIA/AMD Formula One Survey, which was published this morning. The survey was completed by 91,000 fans from 180 countries

An overwhelming 88 percent believed that more emphasis should be put on driver skill and less on driver aids, although interestingly 91 percent believed the sport should be an important showcase for technology.

However, only 28 percent of fans thought technology was the most exciting element of F1.

Aah! The changes in qualifying & tyre rule changes indeed brought some excitement compared to last year. And the *human* element missing is what many people has been shouting from quiet a long time now.

But it is the last quote that somewhat caught us by surprise. We feel this somehow puts a big question mark on the whole “Pinnacle of Motor Sports” theory !!
