F1 doesnt need to do anything
even when there's a new team to come into play in 2021 (first see then believe),
there's the thing of, putting it bluntly 'who cares'.
Why be bothered with F2 drivers not graduating to F1.
it's not like it should be a forced or standard process.
that means excisting drivers need to go. why?
I'd still rather have Kimi around then some new unproven douche that will be out before 2 seasons are done.
Take trash drivers like Palmer.
Any F2 driver going into F1 means somebody should leave.
Again, why? we have pretty great drivers around.
If i were to sum up some drivers that are on their way out:
- Grosjean (surprised he is contracted by haas for 2020)
- Hulkenberg (without a drive for 2020 and i think that'll stay)
- Kimi (still to stay but also will come to a natural end)
- Kubica (no 2020 drive and things look grim)
- Giovanazzi (no talent)
- Gasly (no talent)
- Kvyat (placeholder)
on the 'long term'
i can see Perez out too, and Magnussen.
but in the first case, that's 7 (!) drivers making room in the short future.
with a new team in 2021 that means 9 seats available.
now, let's concider a few things though;
Hulk is replaced by Ocon, so that's one less.
Kubica will probably be replaced by latifie, another less.
so that's 7 spots more or less.
If Giovanazzi is out, due to having no talent, then perhaps Kubica goes in.
that means 1 guy out less, meaning 6 spots to fill.
Thing is, it really isn't so 'grim'. And i don't think Vettel or Hamilton are gonna stay in f1 for another 10 years.
5 years tops for both, and that is only if there is a team change.
Thing is, what 'talent' is coming in from F2?
And how talented are they really that current drivers 'should' be replaced?
Let F2 be a F2. Let F1 be F1. if people are talented enough, they will
make it to F1.
