F1 must be ‘more dangerous’ – Raikkonen

Kimi Raikkonen has urged Formula 1 bosses to change the sport to make it faster and more dangerous again to appeal to the fans, although he did not want drivers to be start to get hurt again.

The current Scuderia Ferrari driver feels that when he made his debut in Formula 1 for the Sauber F1 Team back in 2001 it was far more exciting, but the recent rule changes have hurt the sport and slowed it down far too much.

“When I came into Formula 1, it was more exciting for everybody, it was like really the top, it was a long time ago,” said Raikkonen to Canal+ France.

“We would have expected that cars would be faster and more exciting, but there is the rules changes … they try to make it slower.

“I’m sure something has to be done to make it more exciting to people to watch and also to really see the speed and make it a little bit more dangerous.

“It is part of the game. We don’t want anybody to get hurt but it also makes it more exciting.”
