If you counted through, there are only 11 teams this year, that means only 22 drivers. But what if again, like last year one or more teams get into financial trouble?!!! I think Mr Formula One Bernie Ecclestone should think about this and find a way that we have again an occupied starting straight. It is not the goal to have the circumstances like in the late eighties, when a driver of a weaker team had to qualify for the qualifying, but there should be 26 drivers starting a race. To come to this point, probably the thought of having three drivers in a team would be a worthy consideration.
