It's Ok To Drive Outside Of F1

Allowing drivers the freedom to drive outside of F1 will only benefit everyone. Here's why. First, to understand why some drivers are struggling in new teams we need to understand where they have come from and the beginnings of their career. In a driver's junior career swapping vehicles is the norm. It’s not uncommon for drivers to race different vehicles each week, or even in the same weekend. Even if only minute, each vehicle will have nuances specific to it, and understanding these is often crucial to extracting the last 1% of performance from the vehicle. Frequent swapping early on gives an opportunity for a driver to really fine-tune their skills and know what works in certain scenarios. When a driver reaches F1 this crisscrossing through different categories usually grinds to a halt, as the drivers are usually not permitted the freedom to do so in their contracts. Below I’m going to take a good look at the benefits of drivers racing multiple vehicles and some examples of what happens when they aren’t allowed to do this.
