    It was always been that way. That is why we needs lots of teams and lots of drivers. Letting F1 shrink to 10 teams I think was one of the many big mistakes made by Ecclestone/Mosley. Hopefully we will have at least two new teams in 2021.

    Indeed, some accused me of being a grumpy old man as I constantly gripe about drivers hanging about too long but the sport needs refreshing on a regular basis. Even some of the pay drivers work well as mobile chickens, sorry chicanes.

    The driver monopoly we've pretty much had in place since 2007 when Schumacher retired is indeed on its last legs with only Hamilton and Vettel still really in play (Kimi is obviously still around). It's been held together by talent (obviously), PR and high paying sponsors but it has meant a generation of talented drivers have not had the opportunity to show if they were the real deal or not. If we'd had more competitive teams during this period the last decade of Formula One may have been a very different story.
