Hope they change the way the sport is run. In fact Sunday race is practically useless in most cases. Just qualifying is enough these days. Qualify bad, just run around the circuit for 2 hours.

As much as i love F1, i hate it now and have stopped watching for good.

I guess they're trying to bring back the Old-school cool of the F1 with the new logo.

However, using a SEGA type font clearly looks very amateurish!

On a lighter note, it's much more easy to doodle in notebooks! :P

In short, it sucks!

Exactly my thought! May be they want it to be appealing to teens and pre-teens.

What I notice is that these are all monochrome designs. I hope they did not just look at monochrome designs and picked something from there.

When I looked at the new logo, first thing that came to my mind was the colored concrete strips/run off areas next to the track in all modern tracks (likes of Austin/Sochi/Abu Dhabi). So they have truly accomplished capturing the essence of modern F1 in the new logo.
Second thing is how the flowing curve hits the wall, just like this icon:

Well done!

Honestly, I don't think the logo is bad at all, however it's rather plain/boring in that single colour. Maybe this is why people think it looks amateurish?

The biggest issue i have with it, is that it definitely reads as "FI" rather than "F1" and that's a HUGE downside.

A simple change could have made it much more legible:

Or better yet:

Would have been nice if they at least stuck with the old colours, right?

And better yet, continue to use negative space on the "1" - making this a modernized version of the old logo:

Never noticed the negative space represented '1', how did I miss that.

So True. #1 is very important for the logo.

Even Lewis and Vettel said they didn't like the new one.

I made a crude attempt in MS Paint by taking clues from all the 3 you had posted.

For some reason I relate it with the ESPN logo. Maybe the fact that they have got the broadcasting rights for 2018 is playing in my head.
