The wildcards are calling
I loved the feature on Marc Marquez sampling an F1 car in your September issue – but the reality is that no Motogp star would compromise their guaranteed success for a long-shot in F1, nor would a team take a punt.
Toto Wolff has suggested that teams should run third cars for young drivers. Why not instead allow teams to run wildcard drivers? The FIA could allow six additional slots per GP (allocated on a lottery basis) which in a 20-race calendar would mean every team could run a third car at 12 GPS, on the condition that they cannot use the same driver for more than six races. Imagine the possibilities: guests from Indycar and Motogp, plus other drivers looking to showcase their talents.
