With Jaques not racing this weekend. I start to worry again about the loss of characters in Formula 1. It’s a worry that seems to come around again every time a particular character leaves (or is forced out of the sport). And it does seem to be happening – Jaques, Juan Pablo, Irvine, Stoddard and Jordan have all gone or seem to be on the way out.
But there really are new characters around we just need to get to see them. Scott Speed and Sato immediately spring to mind from the new crop. Also there is more to come. I expect a lot of new drivers coming through.
