Promising juniors in short supply

There is a shortage of really promising talents coming up the ranks towards Formula 1. That is the view of Jack Plooij, the well-known presenter for Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport, who noted that Red Bull junior Juri Vips failed to shine on Friday. For comparison, another practice rookie – Formula E champion Nyck de Vries – was well over a second faster than Vips in the much less competitive Williams. “I believe that Red Bull doesn’t have such good young drivers anymore,” Plooij said. Another Ziggo Sport pundit, Renger van der Zande, also commented: “It’s true – I think there are very few juniors who would do well in Formula 1 at all.
