Hello Ed what's your opinion on the size of modern day f1 cars? Surely they're too big for overtaking on tight tracks which is making qualifying more exciting than the race? Do you have any other suggestions as how to make f1 more exciting?

{Ed001's Note - I have been saying that for ages, smaller cars would make a huge difference.

For me I would get rid of radio, the only thing they should be able to do is let someone know when the car needs to be stopped for safety reasons, let the drivers drive at the speed they think fit and they would hopefully race, rather than drive to a delta. Get rid of all the telemetry etc that they can look at live and the live timings too. Drivers should be driving as fast as they can get the car to go round the track, not following laid out plans and nursing tyres.

There are many things that would make for better racing, such as manual gearboxes and weaker brakes, that would ruin the ideal of F1 being high tech cars. But that would not be necessary if a driver is driving by the seat of his pants.

Oh and most importantly dump the blue flags and stop making backmarkers get out of the way. Just let everyone race and the races will be more exciting.}

Thanks for the reply Ed, what about penalties Ed? I felt that the penalty yesterday was harsh although it is the rules I feel racing is racing and if Hamilton has to break a bit so be it surely that’s just the name of the game?

{Ed001's Note - but Vettel stayed ahead by cutting the corner, so he should have been the one braking.}
