CHANGE NEEDED IN F1: Wheels24 reader HENRY DU BOIS has a great suggestion to spice up grands prix - have drivers race for 25 laps, reverse the grid order and host a second race. Image: AFP

Wheels24 reader HENRY DU BOIS says Bernie Ecclestone should retire and has a suggestion to make F1 races more interesting – reverse circuit layouts. He also mentions something about cross-dressing uncles…

Wheels24 reader CRAIG WILLIAMS emailed us recently about Red Bull veteran Mark Webber’s joy-riding antics at the 2013 Singapore GP.

William’s said it was "ridiculous" to penalise Webber and that Bernie Ecclestone should retire.

Now Wheels24 reader HENRY DU BOIS concurs and suggests an alternative for grands prix – reverse the grid order for the second of two shorter races on the same day.

Here’s what he had to say:

So Wheels24, what would you have said if your uncle started wearing high heels and dresses?

A very irrelevant question to ask Craig! F1 rules are usually made after an incident, especially since Bernie is as old as water and takes decisions to suit his bank account, not the sport.

I agree with Craig that F1 has become so boring over the past two years. Its like watching paint dry. Rather watch MotoGP, at least there the best rider wins not the best pit crew.

Change F1 so that there are 2 x 25 lap races , reverse order for the second race. Maybe the most skilled driver and not the best pit crew will win then.
