I was thinking does Sirotkin have any chance getting into Toro Rosso? Interesting comments from his backers saying they don't want to back Williams and be at the back of the grid which influenced him getting the drive
I think Albon is a long term investment. Kvyat is a one year stop gap like Hartley was and will be moved aside again when Ticktum gets his super licence.I would say Albon has probably got two years at Toro Rosso to prove himself before they promote Ticktum from F2/ Superformula Honda unless he is so bad and suffers the same fate at Hartley
Its very true was catching up on F2 & i brought it up with my dad. Saying do you remember on a btcc race weekend that guy who under a safety car used car as a battering ram. He remembered vaguely & couldnt believe it when i told him. that ticktum is that driverPersonally, I would love it if Red Bull are just trolling Ticktum - sign him to a long-term contract, pay for his development, but, then refuse to ever allow him to race a Red Bull F1 car as a proper punishment for his previous misdeeds.
Personally, if I were an advertiser, I would never want anything to do with a driver of Ticktum's reputation.
1 of my favourite stats. I just found through Twitter. Charles leclerc scored Monaco 1st points for 68 years. Last monasque driver to score points was 1950 Monaco gp when Louis chiron finished 3rd in a maserati
I doubt that record will ever be beaten, when a nation got points in 2nd race & then had to wait until 980th
Also I thought Olivier Beretta must have scored a point, but apparently not. Best finish of 8th back when they weren't throwing points around like confetti. So I learned something new today.
I rereading old threads, after trying to compiling by driver of the year top 10 & proof a record could be potentially broken again for longest gap between nation getting points you make a good point on that, but I would also add alexander albon. doing very well in F2. although to beat the record he would have to be after 2019 Mexican gp
True there was alot of andy Murray syndrome in media. As all F2 season he was british born thai driver. But UK Press at the announcement heavily on the British bornUnless he switches his super licence to British nationality as has been discussed. He can race for both.
