That has to be a good thing.
Ominous... Advertisers can't justify the cost of ad creation and placement.
It must be sad always to see the negatives.
Broadcasters have to be able to justify the expenditure, so the
concern is perhaps overstated but not unfounded.
But you know, I see a lot of comment lately about how LM are backing
down or can't make up their minds or whatever.
EG there was a rumour at Bahrain that one of the sponsors was going
to trot out grid girls to get brand exposure. This then led to
comments along the lines of "if they can't make up their minds about
grid girls, how are they going to stand up to Ferrari."
It's a vailid point. They made getting rid of grid girls a statement on
their branding and the perception of F1. To have made a big deal of
something so trivial and then appear to have backed down or backtracked
would indeed look weak and/or short sighted.

I think there is a different, valid way of looking at things like
this: Namely that the current management are dynamic and pragmatic
and listen to the various stake holders and are willing to fine tune
their processes and policies for the overall betterment of the sport.
And that seems to me a good thing.
Spin it if you like but implementation without consultation is risky if
you are not 100% certain of your plan.
Trump averages six falsehoods a day; how you doin'?
Moderate! an unwitting ignorant cowardly racist, latrine cleaning
mawine and proud of it.
