The survey began a few days ago and was posted on Ferrari’s official web site.
The question asked was very simple and straightforward: what is your opinion on the show put on by the new Formula 1?
Ferrari claims that over 50,000 fans expressed their opinion.
83% are disappointed with the new format, dismissing it mainly because of the drivers being forced to lift off to save fuel.
In addition, the fans don’t like the noise from the new engines and are confused by rules that are too complicated.
Ferrari adds that it is interesting to note that the “no” vote increased dramatically after the Malaysian Grand Prix.
The most vociferous in their opinions were the Italians, British, French and Australians, these countries having long links to Formula 1. But there were also plenty of votes from large countries such as the United States and India.
