    Dear FIA and F1. Please think outside the box to find ways to make Formula One racing exciting again. Race drivers no longer race, they manage (babysit) their cars instead of pushing the vehicles and themselves to the very edge (keeping safety in mind, of course). As a viewer, races have become frustratingly predictable, boring past the first four laps, and some have just flat out been so manipulated (team orders, penalties, questionable strategies, etc) that they seem staged.

    Please consider changing the points system so that no one driver can get so far ahead of any other driver that the competitiveness is gone by mid season (10 points for first, eight for second, six for third, four for fourth, and one point each for fifth through 10th)

    Also consider awarding partial points for: quickest lap, fastest pit, pole position and fuel management (that would encourage the development of more fuel efficiency in racing and would be yet another F1 technology that could be exported to the passenger car world.)

    Finally, consider setting up some sort of centralized technical center to provide offseason assistance to teams with smaller budgets to help them become more competitive thereby making the entire field more competitive and racing more safe.
