Christian Horner hopes F1 has not gone too far with restrictions on radio communications, as debate continues over the FIAs clampdown. F1s governing body has introduced a tighter interpretation of the rule which states that cars must be driven alone and unaided with a series of new restrictions on how teams can communicate with their drivers over the radio.Fridays world feed TV coverage of practice at the Australian GP featured noticeably few team radio soundbites, with pitwalls seemingly taking a cautious approach to the new regulations which apply to practice sessions as well as races. Horner, Red Bulls team principal, is concerned F1 may have inadvertently detracted from the spectacle by reducing the scope for communication with drivers.I think its going to be a voyage of discovery and I hope we havent gone too far on the radio stuff, because thats taking away an element of dialogue between the engineer and the driver, he said. Some of that from behind the scenes can be quite entertaining, some of it X-rated, but quite enthralling for the fans.We got quite a few changes to take on board this year, so lets see how it goes.Formula 1s radio clampdown is unnecessaryMercedes boss Toto Wolff cited the new radio rules when reacting to Nico Rosbergs crash in the rain-hit Practice Two session, saying the team had considered switching him to the full wet tyres but couldnt tell him because of the new rules. The Sky Sports F1 punditry team give some of their predictions ahead of the start of the 2016 Formula One season. Part 2 coming soon Although McLarens Fernando Alonso does not believe there is a potential safety concern with the revised regulations, he reckons does not understand why the rules extend to practice.I dont think its going to be anything serious, but probably the restrictions are a little bit too extreme sometimes - especially in free practice, Alonso told Sky Sports News HQ.I understand in the race its supposed to be the driver alone driving by himself and his instinct, but sometimes in free practice we miss some test or forget something because they cannot tell us [what to do]. There is no performance or help in it, we are just testing in free practice and we cannot receive any calls.Its a little bit strange.FIA confident changes will workAlonsos team-mate Jenson Button has suggested the FIA will find it impossible to police the messages delivered to all 22 cars, but FIA race director Charlie Whiting explained on Friday how the governing body will keep across all radio channels.Were listening to it in real time, Whiting said. Weve got four people in race control listening to three drivers each, and then weve got four or five software engineers listening to two or three each, so its relatively straightforward. He also denied the clampdown would eradicate the kind of juicy radio soundbites from drivers which have become a central part of TV coverage in recent years.First of all, we heard many many complaints from viewers who were a bit fed up of hearing the continual engineering assistance the driver was getting, Whiting added. Thats fundamentally what we want to cut out, but the driver is allowed to say anything he wants - theres no restrictions in what he says; its what the team can say to him.Youll still get what I would call the juicy content - if someone has done something silly on track, the driver can call him an idiot and all that sort of stuff. Those are the things that generally I think people like to hear.The first race of the 2016 F1 season, the Australian GP, is exclusively live on Sky F1.
