Can new rules save F1 as we know it?

By:

A big week of off-track news means Formula 1 will hopefully become dramatically, and positively, different. But what can't yet be known is whether all the current marques will be a part of that future due to damage already done

Even without racing, Formula 1 manages to throw up engaging storylines.

Of course, it would be far better for everyone if the 2020 season had been able to play out as expected what seems like a lifetime ago in winter testing, but as any test batsman determined not to give their wicket away knows, you can only think about playing the ball in front of you.

The week just about to end has been a packed one when it comes to heavy F1 news.

Some was good - such as the ratifying of the championship's new sporting, technical and financial rules, the Austrian government apparently allowing starting the season at the Red Bull Ring next month, and Renault outlining its commitment to remaining in the series. And some was bad: McLaren announcing that it has been forced to cut 1200 jobs, and the financial plight of the Williams squad being laid bare.
