F1 in steep decline in Germany

As we predicted, the horribly sounding engines and Mercedes domination will kill off interest in F1. F1 spent all the money on the new engines and they are destroying the sport.

With German television audiences already in decline, ticket sales for this weekend's race at Hockenheim are not pointing towards a sell-out even though German Nico Rosberg is leading the championship for Mercedes. Grandstands were largely empty on Friday.

Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff admitted the lack of crowds on Friday were disappointing.

"It's not satisfying," explained Wolff. "If you compare Hockenheim Friday to Friday at Silverstone and Friday in Austria, it's a different world.

"We have to understand why that is. I'm not sure whether we have an exact number for Sunday already – you know, there are lots of people probably deciding at short notice, depending on the weekend – and we have to analyze the phenomenon."

Psst, someone tell Toto it his team that is destroying sport. Mercedes pushed for the ridiculous 'green' engines they now use. They are expensive and sound horrible, a sure recipe for disaster.

"If the weekend continues like it does now, we need to think about it."

F1 is facing growing calls to consider radical changes in a bid to stop interest in it declining – with FIA president Jean Todt this week backing the idea of a summit for the sport to address its issues.
