HAS F1 BECOME BORING?: Many readers believe that F1 has lost its 'Wow!' factor, some even suggesting switching to Nascar or taking up fishing! Image: AFP / Wang Zhao

I am a female aged 63 and have watched Formula 1 for many years. I'm sad that I no longer watch the sport.

Drivers cannot race to their full potential, constant tyre-nursing, saving fuel, saving the engines etc... And as for the noise, I'd rather watch my husband mow the lawn.

F1 is a great sport ruined.

Both F1 and SuperBikes are faced with the same engine, tyre, fuel-saving issues, yet the latter is still very exciting. It's very sad!


Wheels24 reader Fanie Gerber voiced his opinion on the state of Formula 1 in 2014.
