From 2022, more places are likely to become available in the first free practice sessions during race weekends to deploy rookies to give them experience. Haas hopes for help from the great Ferrari.
Guenther Steiner, team principal of the Haas team, expects Ferrari to regularly send their talents to his side to conduct training sessions in the Haas. “The moment those rules are actually implemented, I think we will be targeting Ferrari drivers. Formula 1 wants to overhaul the rules about free practice in 2022 so that teams are forced to give younger talents the opportunity to show their skills faster. in the royal class.
Talking to Ferrari
Obviously, not every team has a truckload of talent ready to handle those mandatory practices, so Steiner wants to talk to the Ferrari team to see what’s possible should the rule pass. “I haven’t talked to Ferrari about who they have available next year, but that is the first choice. If they don’t have anyone, there are probably people who would like to drive a Formula 1 car in VT1.”
