Stefan Bradl: Would abolish the pit radio in the formula 1

The pit radio is in the formula 1 is a pretty controversial topic. Only last weekend, in Hungary the two Haas drivers were punished because they were called in the warm-up lap from the Team in the Box - forbidden driving instructions was the justification of the race stewards.

In the race however, it is legal that a Lando Norris in the final phase of Spielberg is said, in which curve he which button for how long to press and just where the criticism is. The driver will be much controlled from the outside and only the Mario are basically nice of your team. Everything is meticulously planned from the outside.

The former MotoGP rider Stefan Bradl finds that the driver should have more influence, and would abolish the pit radio in the formula 1 completely. "I want the riders to win. Of course, the Team is part of it, but I want the driver to have the bite and decide," he says in 'ServusTV'.

The MotoGP, however, is frequently praised for its exciting races. Boxes radio there is not there: The Teams are not able to communicate with your drivers via signs or the Dashboard on the motorcycle, but in a different way. "In MotoGP, the riders have significantly more decision-making power and can adhere to the victory, more than in formula 1," says Bradl.

In the formula 1 will be taken from the drivers of the decision, however, often. When a driver comes in the Box, as a rule, chooses the Team, according to Bradl should be but the driver.

On the abolition of the Boxenfunks has been discussed in the past. For a period of time driving directions were prohibited to drivers, but because it was, thanks to encrypted messages only difficult to and there was Trouble with security-related announcements, the injunction was lifted in 2017.

AlphaTauri team boss Franz Tost does not believe, anyway, that this is the puzzle's solution: "The Abolish of the communication for the race will make it more exciting", he is dismissive. "You can set the driver to the fact that you have less adjustment options that are just as efficient."

"For us, the drivers are trained pretty well. The know yourself, what you can do. If you change the Differential, or a few Mappings to change, for this you need the boxes, not radio," said Tost. "The pit radio is, when it comes to fine-tuning. But great Changes you make to the does not cause. You've tried it, Yes, has changed nothing."
