The hockey expansion rule that could benefit Andretti's F1 bid

OPINION: The wheels have been set into motion for a new team to join the Formula 1 grid, with Andretti expressing plans to enter the series in the coming years together with Cadillac. It will likely be a winding road lined with many hurdles, but what if F1 turned to the NHL and its expansion rules to welcome a new team?

Watching last Monday’s NHL Winter Classic tie up between the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins offered a welcome distraction to the fact that, now 2023 has well and truly begun, the Christmas holidays are now well and truly over.

The FIA’s mercurial president Mohammed Ben Sulayem got tongues wagging on the same day Patrice Bergeron’s Bruins snatched a 2-1 win over Sidney Crosby’s Penguins when he said he was appealing to F1’s governing body to seek out interest in adding a new team to the grid. This was followed up by the announcement by Andretti and Cadillac on Thursday of their joint plans to enter F1 in the coming years.
