Guenther Steiner supports the idea of obliging teams to give time in Friday practices to young drivers.
Why it matters: Stefano Domenicali has confirmed that F1 s set to have a discussion with the teams about giving time in Friday practice sessions to young drivers so that they could get the experience behind the steering wheel.
- Haas team principal admits that drivers outside of Formula 1 have limited chances to drive F1 cars, so the new rule will be useful
- At the same time, Steiner thinks that teams, FIA, and FOM should all agree to modify the rules.
If you think about it, there is very little opportunity for a non-F1 driver to show what he can do or even sit in an F1 car because the tests are limited. So maybe this is something we should entertain.Guenther Steiner
