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.

Ahead of the competition, weve asked Sky Sports Rob Key and Nasser Hussain to take a look at the North and South groups respectively, picking out their winners and ones to watch.Heres Nassers take on the southern sides, while click here for Robs thoughts on the northern teams... South Group winner…Im going to be a bit one-eyed and go with Essex. Theyre playing well at the moment, albeit in a different format, and havent lost any star names to the IPL or anything like that. With Ryan ten Doeschate, Ravi Bopara, Tom Westley and Jesse Ryder - plus Wahab Riaz to get the wickets - they look a strong outfit. They always tend to do well in the group stages but then their nemesis is the quarter-finals, but Im backing that to change this year.Quarter-final contenders…Surrey have a good combination of youth and experience, with Kumar Sangakkara complementing all the young talent coming through.Historically Hampshire have always played well in T20 cricket - they know and like the format - and have good overseas players in Darren Sammy and Shahid Afridi, plus James Vince is a fantastic white-ball player and captain.Somerset have a small ground at Taunton, and so the Chris Gayle factor comes into play. Theyre another who always seem to do well in this format. Kumar Sangakkara will aid Surreys young stars Strugglers…Gloucestershire. I know they won the 50-over competition last year, but I think they just rely a little bit too much on Michael Klinger. As they showed last year, you shouldnt write off the glorious Gloucester - they are white-ball specialists - but I just think they might struggle. Glamorgan might also find it tough.Batting star…Brendon McCullum. He is with Middlesex this year, playing at Lords which is a small ground with a quick outfield. He is an absolute superstar and one of the great T20 players of all time. He will be fresh and raring to go, a man to look out for. Brendon MMcCullum is playing for Middlesex this term Bowling star…Mustafizur Rahman, the hugely talented left-armer.dddddddddddd There is a little rumour that he might not be coming over - a bit tired after the IPL - but if he does come, as we saw when he played for Bangladesh at the World T20, he is a real handful with his variations, yorkers, and slower balls. He is a superb signing for Sussex, as long as he is not too exhausted.Gun fielder…Dwayne Bravo. He is all action in the field, the definition of a gun fielder, and a good dancer, too! Dwayne Bravo - a fantasy team must have Emerging talent…Ive got three. Young Tom Westley at Essex, I think it is his time and he is a very good batsman. With the ball there is Sam Curran at Surrey, although I dont think he will play until after his exams are finished. But hes a year older and will have put on an extra yard of pace, plus I like the left-arm variation.A real left-field one for you - a lad at Sussex called Jonty Jenner, from Jersey. He has been very good at their under-17 level. He is a batsman-wicketkeeper who may well come into their side - a modern, young, T20 player who can hit it 360 degrees.Fantasy team must-have…Dwayne Bravo, again. He gets wickets at the death with those dipping slower balls of his, hell get runs and is a gun fielder. All-round points is what you want from your fantasy team, so you have to get Bravo in there.Id like to see someone come in fancy dress as… Will anyone turn up dressed as David Lloyd?

Someone has to come dressed up as Bumble, talk like Bumble, commentate like Bumble, sing like Bumble and be as mad as Bumble!The 2016 NatWest T20 Blast gets underway with Essex taking on Surrey, live on Sky Sports 2 from 7pm on Friday.
