Hamilton: F1 change could be exciting

Lewis Hamilton believes that potential changes to Formula One could be exciting for fans and drivers. He admitted that whilst he hasn't given much thought to exact changes he would make, experimentation and changes to the calendar and rules could be spice up races where there is little action normally.

Although he has dominated the second half of the season, Hamilton believes that changes could be made to the sport that would mix up the pecking order in qualifying and races, as well as the need to venture away from some circuits into new territory.

“I have not thought about it and I don’t know they were thinking about changing it," he is quoted by Motorsport Week.

“More tyres, more time on track maybe? More sessions maybe? I don’t know. Session on Friday and session on Saturday? I don’t know.

“Anything different from what’s now I am sure will be interesting at least.

“I think though one of the biggest changes that needs to be made is that at the moment it’s the same four days every weekend for 21 weekends every single year pretty much and I think it needs to be dynamic, it needs to be different for certain circuits.

“There’s some tracks where the race is so boring.

“I remember growing up and watching it falling asleep after the start which I am sure there are people who must fall asleep after the start and then wake up, or set their alarms for the end.

“I used to do it when I was younger and there some tracks which kept you on the edge of your seat which I imagine was like Baku this year.

“I think it’s more exciting this year for being these cars are the best they’ve ever been but I am sure there’s those dull races, so picking those out, saying how we can make it different for that race.

“Whether it’s reverse grid or whatever we end up doing, they should look into something like that.”
