Too old to watch the Asian races live.
Lotus also had Rindt, Fittipaldi and Peterson as second drivers. Hardly slouches.F1Brits_90 was right, drivers of different abilities should still be able to race each other.
If you go back to the 60's 99 percent of teams had second rate drivers to back their star driver up anyway so that's nothing new. If you look at Lotus as a classice example, apart from the super team of Clark and Hill, some of the second seats at Lotus belonged to Alan Stacey, Eppie Weitz, Reine Wessel, Dave Charlton and John Miles. Most people would have never heard of most, if at all any of them.
