Although the F1 community is collectively on a "Summer break" that doesn't mean that F1 is shutting down during this period.
This time of year is usually a time for everyone in the F1 community to either look back on the first half of the season, or to look forward to a new year. This Summer break has been no different so far with some of the latest news coming out in the last few days being McLaren Sporting Director Eric Boullier voicing his opinion on the current state of F1.
Boullier has recently made public his views that F1 is "shooting itself in the foot" because of the overly negative reaction to the new 2014 F1 regulations, particularly the new engine noise and fuel flow limits. Compounding the negative response from several key figures in F1 are falling TV audiences across Europe.
Boullier instead feels F1 should be doing more to promote itself and is quoted as saying "We have more countries interested in hosting grand prix's and we should be pushing and supporting these changes because it's great to see F1 going to new countries." He later added "F1 should be engaging more with the fans and engaging more with new technologies."
