Formula 1 should be included in the Olympic Games. That opinion will not go down well with the purists, not least former International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge, who ruled out the notion in 2012 just before his tenure came to an end. But there is no reason why it shouldn't be.
When Rogge made his comments he said he had the "highest respect" for F1 drivers, who compete in one of the world's biggest sporting categories. But he added that the Olympics is about the athletes and not the equipment and therefore F1 has no place.
Of the 39 events on the Rio 2016 schedule, 18 require equipment that could theoretically impact on the performance of the athlete. So, on that basis, should they all be removed from the competition?
