World champion of Formula 1, 1992 Nigel Mansell believes that Large Prizes have more teams and, therefore, places on the starting grid.
In recent seasons, following the demise of HRT, Caterham and Manor, the number of places in the peloton was reduced to 20 even if you consider the debut of Haas in 2016. According to Mansell, this is very bad for riders who are just on the way to F1.
“In the 80-90-e starting grid in Formula 1 was much more, – quotes the edition of the Mansell Motorsport-Total. – Often racers dropped out due to injuries, while others were given the chance. Now everything has changed. Cars have become safer, but the racer career is now twice as long. Everything is great, but many good pilots waiting for their chance – some would never get.”
