Brazil’s Globo quoted team technical boss Pat Symonds as saying the former Ferrari driver Massa alongside Valtteri Bottas is among the best pairing he has seen “in the 30 years I have worked in formula one”. It is believed 34-year-old Massa, who joined Williams in 2014, has an ‘option’ in his current contract for 2016. “I like to work here,” he said on Thursday, “the team has…

Furthermore, in 1950, British Grand Prix staged the first ever Formula 1 Championship race.A little bit of historySo, speaking of Silverstone is speaking about the F1 history itself.

However I feel that both of these surveys are somewhat missing the point.Surely the aim is to bring in new fans to F1? So shouldn't we be asking non-F1 fans why they don't watch?

I've just sat back and watched all of the opinions appear on other websites before making my comment.Firstly we need to decide if F1 is really broken? Certainly it's quite expensive to compete, but it always has been and teams have come and gone throughout the years, that has never changed.
