Remark of the working day

Though Mercedes’ announcement that Mick Schumacher would be part of them as reserve driver for 2023 thrilled his admirers, other people had been considerably less enthused. Reader PeterG thinks Schumacher – and all younger motorists – should have far more patience…

Folks are much far too rapid to create off motorists now soon after a hard year, In particular the young rookies.

It is amusing how back again when tests was unrestricted rookies had been supplied far more time to find out than they are now when they get scarcely any time in an F1 car or truck at all.

It made use of to be approved that younger rookies would battle and make issues in the initial calendar year or two. Still now if they are not on it from working day one they are viewed as as not that fantastic and published off as not deserving of an F1 seat.

Felipe Massa was dreadful in his rookie year but he was authorized to find out and experienced to the level where by he almost received the championship.

Andrea De Cesaris crashed a whole lot early on but made into a really protected pair of palms.

James Hunt was equivalent but was supplied time to experienced into a winner. Equivalent with Jody Scheckter.

I question James Hunt would have been supplied the possibility to struggle for a championship in contemporary F1 as he’d be published off as hopeless just before receiving there and even if he did he’d be out within just a calendar year.

It is unfortunate the point out the activity is in now in this regard.PeterG
