                                Good god, 7-8 adjustments per lap?! I practically drive off the track trying to adjust fuel mix once or twice a race! F1 drivers are super human and VB77 is one of the nicest human beings I have ever met!!! Looking forward to more wins this year!

                                      I have an idea.. maybe it should resemble a "wheel". Way too much electronic control now. Go back to stick shifts and driver champions. I can care less about a computer manufactured championship. Electronics should only aid safety.. has no place in the "racing" aspect.

                                                Why not always keep comm the com channel open (radio button)? Sure the team back in the pit or wherever will hear some cursing every now and then, but it would relieve time/focus to press, as well as space on the wheel. (F1 noob here)
