Former Formula 1 driver Karon Chandhoek is hoping there will be more teams in Formula 1 in the near future. A few months ago, Michael Andretti submitted an application, but noted that the FIA was not considering any new teams at this time.
There are currently only twenty seats in Formula 1 and a Sky Sports F1 analyst sees a problem with the influx of young talent. For example, Formula 2 champion Oscar Piastre is forced to sit along the line. The Australian has won every category he has competed in in the past three years. Number three in last season’s Formula 2, Guanyu Zhou has a place in the first class of motorsport. Explains the situation within the sport.
“An additional team will be beneficial to the sport”
in conversation with Motorsport.com Chandhoek tells of Andretti’s interest: “I know Michael and his dad Mario [Andretti, de wereldkampioen Formule 1 van 1978] Little. No one has a greater passion for motorsport than them. “Now that Formula 1 has shifted the focus to the United States, it looks like the next former driver would make sense to have another team from that country.” In addition, I think it would be good for Formula 1 to have another American team,” he explains.
“He did everything he could”
So the situation around Biastri is disturbing Chandhoek. “He did everything he could. He became a champion in his first year in Formula 3 brilliantly and took the title in a great way in his first year in Formula 2. This boy deserves a chance in Formula 1, but there simply isn’t enough seats.”
