Lewis Hamilton has time and again voiced concern over the drab nature of F1, especially on tracks that offer next to no overtaking options.
A lot of the races this year have been mere processions, with cars unable to follow each other and fans left with nothing but a boring viewing experience.
Hamilton has gone onto say that the race weekends need to be more dynamic. They cannot just be the same 4 days of the same thing happening over and over again.
The Brit recalled going off to sleep after race starts during his childhood. He used to then wake up towards the end and sleep through most of the race as there wasn’t much action on track.
Hamilton has suggested rolling out reverse grids, especially on tracks that are not tailor made for ‘racing’.
“I think one of the biggest changes that needs to be made is that at the moment it is the same four days, every weekend, for 21 weekends every single year pretty much,” he said.
“I think it needs to be dynamic. It needs to be different for certain circuits so you have a ‘super weekend’. There are some tracks where the race is so boring.
“I remember growing up watching [F1] and falling asleep after the start. I am sure there are people who fall asleep after the start and wake up when they set their alarms for the end.
“I used to do it when I was younger, and there were some tracks that kept you on the edge of your seat, like I imagine Baku this year.” he added.
Hamilton concedes that the cars are brilliant to drive but they don’t really provide a good racing spectacle.
“I think it is more exciting this year, being in these cars is the best it has ever been. But I am sure there are still dull races.
“So picking those ones out and saying, how can we make it different for that race? Whether it is reverse grid or whatever we end up doing, they should look into doing that.” Hamilton said.
