Bird must win today.
I fully believe he deserves a shot in F1. His actual racing is some of the best I’ve ever seen, however his only team link is with Mercedes, and they’re full.
I think for him to have any chance in F1 at all he needs to win this Championship, if he does, he could be in for a potential Williams drive. What with Williams moving to Mercedes engines, the German manufacturer may want to see if they can get their third man into a car and use the engine deal to do so.
I hope so, he deserves a season at least, more so than Chilton..
