In a recent Autosport magazine column I put the case for driver rotation in F1 as a means of 'improving the show'. I wouldn't put money on it happening, but I think it should. Sure, there'd be problems instigating it, but I reckon the upsides would far outweigh those. Space constraints precluded too much of a rant in the mag, so here I go again ...
First off, certain drivers are contracted years ahead. So I guess you have to ask the CRB (Contracts Recognition Board) what the longest existing contract is, and start rotation the following year.
Why do I think it's a good idea? Because I hate injustice. I hate seeing talent squandered and at the moment in Formula 1 there are only two teams offering its drivers the opportunity to become world champion.
And to all those who say, "Well, it has ever been thus," or "But it wouldn't be F1," so what? Just because that's the way something has always been, doesn't make it right.
