Formula 1 | Wolff offers 30-car F1 grid for young drivers

The debate over the lack of places in Formula 1 for young drivers is raging at the moment, while Frédéric Vasseur hesitates in particular between three candidates from Formula 2 for his second seat at Alfa Romeo.

For Toto Wolff, the director of Mercedes F1, the FIA ​​should consider introducing a third car in the teams for young people. A somewhat absurd idea in the days of budget ceilings.

« We could use a third car with the obligation to place a novice driver in it » notes the Austrian. « Suddenly we would end up with a starting grid of 30 cars. »

Williams F1 manager Jost Capito disagrees with this idea: « We can’t just go up to 30 cars now. It wouldn’t work. »

“Going from two to three cars sounds easy, but it’s incredibly difficult. It’s 50% more. I don’t know how you could do that with 22 or 23 races a year.”
