« My sponsor is my experience. » Said Pedro de la Rosa last Wednesday after admitting his failure to the team Campos Meta 1. The Spaniard is now back at McLaren as test driver.
The phrase is a phrase that many drivers could get used to a Formula 1 for 2010. Jarno Trulli, Jacques Villeneuve, Giancarlo Fisichella, etc. … the list goes on. But experience does not sponsor, and some teams want younger drivers, provide a good bank account. These special benefits, or the number of dollars is stronger than experience, is in the tradition of Formula 1
When all goes well, drivers adapt themselves, denounced the benefits, while trying to obtain for himself. But when the driver is unemployed, the situation becomes unbearable.
So what? Take a young driver with 8 million dollars or take an experienced pilot, you will, perhaps, to have sponsors and to score championship points for the TV rights FOA / FOM? The answer is in the instantaneous and not in view.
But, as often happens in Formula 1, there is no real logical sport. Only one logical economy.
