Do not introduce the halo safety device in Formula One
Today the news has broken that Formula One will introduce the halo safety device in 2018 following a Strategy Group meeting on Wednesday. I, like many other F1 fans, feel this move is overall detrimental to the sport. While it may be proven that it has safety benefits, it may also bring some, with the time taken for drivers to exit the cockpit being increased, the potential for bouncing tyres to deflect off the halo into the crowd and vision being worsened, especially in wet conditions. But most of all it will destroy the character of F1 cars and will be a complete eyesore to the viewing public. It is also widely accepted that the device would have had no impact with both the Bianchi & Massa incidents. I for one do not see anything other than the sport becoming a laughing stock to others if this is to be introduced. Closed cockpits being safer than open cockpits is not some newly discovered fact. So, why should Formula One suddenly go for a swift change of direction when the risks involved in the sport have been public knowledge since as long as we can all remember? Media sources have suggested that 9 out of 10 teams voted against the Halo, which shows the unpopularity of the halo within the F1 paddock. And in my opinion, shows a lack of respect to the F1 teams if it turns out to be true. The World Motor Sport Council will still need to sign the halo off before it can arrive on the grid in 2018, but hopefully, with the support of F1 fans, we can make them think twice.

Name a corner of the Nürburgring as "Surtees"
John Surtees died on March 10th 2017. He wasn't just the only man to win the premiere World Championships on both four wheels and two wheels, he was also a legendary "RingMeister". Fastest laps, race wins, any vehicle, any conditions, that was Surtees.He deserves a corner of the Nordschleife to be named after him in perpetuity. By naming it simply "Surtees" we can not only honour a motorsports hero, but also his family name and dynasty, which was tragically cut short when his son Henry was killed at Brands Hatch circuit in 2009.I have written a full explanation on my blog.

Revert the current Q3 F1 Qualifying Format to 2006-2015 F1 Q3 Qualifying Format
Dear Bernie Ecclestone, At this time the current F1 qualifying format is now sucks, The current F1 qualifying format uses 90-seconds elimination from 3-8 positions. 2006-2015 Q3 F1 qualifying format was no eliminations and more exciting. This current Q3 format is very boring and too favorable with Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team. We ask you to revert the current Q3 qualifying format to 2006-2015 Q3 F1 Qualifying Format. The Q3 F1 qualifying format should be abolished and makes us boring. Yours Sincerely Formula 1 fans

Keep Jenson Button for 2015
Jenson Button is one of Britain's best loved Formula 1 drivers, and to not see him in 2015 would be a great loss to Formula 1. He is a brilliant ambassador for F1, and has now become a synonymous face with McLaren.
