I just think he’d rather see Virgin and Hispania off the grid than languishing three and four seconds off the pace
That didn’t really seem to worry him in the late 80′s through to the mid 90′s.
Grids of 20 cars in an F1 race just looks silly. You see them pull away from the start line, they zoom past, and then I always have a little niggle in the back of my head… “where’s the rest of ‘em?”. 26, 28, even 30 cars would be excellent. The wide open spaces that pass for modern F1 tracks look empty even with 22 or 24 cars, I feel.
