Formula 1 has progressively become a snooze fest over more than a decade. I think the last great years were Shumi versus Alonso.
It has taken a lot of years for fans to start dropping off. This year so far looks pretty interesting and I love the new cars.
As it took years for people to drop off, I suspect it will also take years to get people back to watching and for new people to start watching.
It would be nice for this board to become more active again.
