Rules is Rules

Michael Schumacher has been giving his opinion about the latest rule changes recently. First of all it sounded like he didn't like the changes, but now he's saying he does, but doesn't like the fact that they've changed. Are you still with me? Good. Because in general I agree with him. I think the fact that the FIA has accepted that there are problems is a good thing, but they really are making too many changes that aren't thought through.

How many other sports have rules that change every year? Especially when the fans are saying that they liked the rules as they were five years ago, but if you could lose a bit of the downforce to give the drivers more chance to overtake, that would be great, thank you very much.

It seems clear that what the FIA needs is an intelligent, knowledgeable person that can understand what the public wants and could phrase it in such a way that the teams wouldn't be able to get round it. So why haven't the FIA contacted Zurich Gnome yet. He's waiting with baited breath.
