Miss­ing the point

F1 Racing (UK) - - INBOX -

I sup­pose Mr Mcaleer’s let­ter

[F1 Rac­ing, Novem­ber] on team or­ders was in­evitable and I be­lieve mis­un­der­stands what F1 is all about.

The aim is to pro­duce and de­velop the best team and cars within the reg­u­la­tions. Hav­ing fol­lowed the sport for over 60 years I think the in­tro­duc­tion of the drivers’ cham­pi­onship has in­deed added a fur­ther di­men­sion and in­ter­est to the sport. Re­gret­tably it seems to have di­verted at­ten­tion from the cars, with the con­struc­tors’ cham­pi­onship get­ting far less at­ten­tion than it de­serves.

There are other types of mo­tor sport where drivers can com­pete in sim­i­lar cars and they are very en­joy­able... but they are not F1. Mike Bishop Leighton Buz­zard, UK
