Ross Brawn says Abu Dhabi GP shows F1 needs to change!

Ross Brawn says that the recent season ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix showed the exact reasons why F1 needs to change in the coming years. The race at Yas Marina Circuit was a bit of a snooze fest and left the season on a pretty underwhelming note after some cracking races earlier in the year.

Lewis Hamilton won his 11th race of the year and was never really challenged for it, with the best battles happening on the last lap in the midfield, although watching on TV, we didn't get to see any of them live.

Brawn has been pushing for change in F1, and the 2021 rules are set to switch it up massively, but Brawn still believes things can be done to help the spectacle of F1.

He wrote in his post-race column: “In Sunday’s race, no DRS was available for almost 20 laps because of a technical problem and that only served to emphasise the need for the cars to be able to fight at close quarters.

"In addition, the performance gap between the teams needs to be reduced, because looking at Sunday’s race, once again only the top teams completed the full race distance, every other team was lapped.

“These goals are shared at every level by the stakeholders in the sport, especially the fans. An important step has been taken, but there is more to come and we are definitely moving in the right direction."
