reason i say about stoffel vandoorne is because Frederic Vasseur is big supporter of Vandoorne saying in september
"We cannot accept that a guy who has won everything does not make it to F1, otherwise it is an absolute denial of the ladder system. If we say that this kid has won in Formula Renault, has finished second in his maiden year in the World Series, has been runner-up in his first season in GP2 and who, I hope, will be this year’s GP2 champion cannot make it to F1, how can you motivate young kids to race karts?"
Renault set to appoint ART's Vasseur - Autosport
Vandoorne missing out on F1 would be "unacceptable", says ART boss
I wonder if Lotus would have done better had they appointed
Hulkenburg, Di Resta or Perez back in 2014? Has anyone managed to calculate the return on investment Pastor has bought to the Lotus team ?
completely agree, but its not maldonado fault but he kind of embodies the problems that f1 has at the moment because they were so hard up, they had to take money over talent. which is never good for the "show" as so many talented drivers like the last 4 GP2 Champions + Robin Frijns, Kamui kobayashi, Tom dillmann, Tio Ellinas, Sam Bird, James Calado
i have no problem with pay drivers, because some of greatest drivers to ever race in F1 were pay drivers when they got on the grid thinking of lauda, schumacher, alonso & senna but difference is that drivers got on the grid through money impressed & then they got up the grid on talent, but now drivers can end up in midfield/podium challenging teams on purely monetary decisions
I could be wrong but I think only Lauda was a pay driver when he started.
FB - The only one to follow it up with ten consecutive no points finishes, though.
Yeah lauda psid for his 1st season thru a bank rush said, Schumacher had his Jordan drive paid for by mercedes
Alonso got minardi drive thru sponsorship I thought
I thought senna bought his way into toleman. But this 1 I might be wrong
