F1 ‘far too complex’ at present says Vettel

Formula 1 should spice up the sport by simplifying the rules.

That is the view of Sebastian Vettel, an unabashed motor racing ‘purist’ who is among those who believe the current regulations are not quite right.

Asked by his own website if F1 should be more concerned about being ‘hybrid’ and environmentally relevant or simply entertain the fans, the Ferrari driver answered: “I think primarily it should be about the sport and which driver is the fastest.

“The car plays a key role today, as it did in the past. But we should not get lost in complicated regulations.

“The spectators must be able to identify with the car and the technology, as currently it is far too complex. Additionally, the sound is missing,” Vettel added.

He also vowed to try to spice up 2016 by getting into the world championship battle, as “the dominance of Mercedes has taken away the excitement for many fans”.

“Also, we are currently focusing too much on details. I think we must not lose the roots of motor sport,” said Vettel.
