Root: F1 needs new camera settings

The Formula-1 cars are faster and more spectacular due to the new regulation. The improvement can be clearly seen on the rounds, but not yet on the TV screens.

Although online recordings could convey some impressions of a faster formula 1, ex-pilot Alexander Wurz calls for further TV changes, wants to present the new royal class at all its speed.

The Austrian, who is still the head of the GPDA Driver’s Association, wants different camera settings, to transport the speed into the living room: if the TV image goes away from the old school business model of the wide open lenses to very fast settings, then the sport goes in the right direction”, He says to “Autosport”.

In the Albert Park of Melbourne, formula 1 was able to pull out of the affair well in this respect, because the bolts on the narrow track were close to the walls. But on the parking lot of China next weekend, the cars could be lost in the big exit zones and slow-acting, especially with camera settings from the front, the 1,3 kilometers straight along does not get a feeling of speed.

“In every round, there is a push, and that’s cool”

Otherwise, the royal class in Australia has so far presented itself authentically, as root means:”If you hear a world champion breathing breathlessly on the radio because he is at the limit all the time, then you no longer have to explain to anyone how physically demanding and challenging driving is,”said Wurz.”If you hear a world champion breathing breathlessly on the radio because he is at the limit all the time In every round the product is pumped, and this is cool.”

This makes it easier to sell. So the basic recipe seems to be back in place. Root: “Now it is up to the new owner to promote, promote and promote it.”
