Berger critical of regulations and wet races: F1 is too careful

Former Formula 1 driver Gerhard Berger is not impressed by how the sport manages wet races these days, and is also not a fan of the controversial track limits rulings.

Gerhard Berger has criticised Formula 1's management for how they handle wet races as well as the regulation of track limits.

Both topics have been key talking points so far in the 2021 season, with the second Grand Prix of the year at Imola forcing the drivers to deal with difficult weather conditions. Berger believes F1 sometimes exercises too much caution when it comes to the rain and that the drivers should be allowed to show that they can handle it.

"I think it's part of our sport," Berger told the F1 Nation podcast. "And it's up to you to go a bit slower or a bit faster.

"But if we want to show millions of fans our capability of driving a car in difficult situations, I think that's one of the things.

"Now I see the safety car, you don't know already [if it is] still wet enough for rain tyres or should we go to slicks? And the safety car is still out.

"The history of Formula 1 is to race in the wet. Of course there is a point when the aquaplaning gets too far, but I think these days they're much too careful on this one."

Berger is similarly not a fan of how F1 has been regulating track limits, an issue that has affected several drivers during the first two race weekends of the season.

"If you're not careful and you go too far [with the rules], fans will not like to see it anymore," the former driver - who raced in the sport between 1984 and 1997 - said.

"When you talk now [of] all these fines because [of] leaving the track and all this bullsh*t, I cannot stand it.

"I mean, leave the track if the outside is quicker. In our days, then you did it. It's not quicker usually, you [can] destroy something.

"But now, when you go over kerbs and your car was 10 centimetres out of it, I cannot stand this kind of regulation.

"I've looked at MotoGP, the limits, the risks they are still making. And I think fans need to see this because otherwise they're going to lose interest in our sport."
