Martin Brundle: Missing out 2013 drives had their chances



Former F1 driver and current Sky Sports TV commentator Martin Brundle, told Sky Sports News he believes the sport should welcome the new crop of young drivers that have entered the grid this season, as the more experienced ones that were forced to make way “all had their chances to shine”.

Prominent change made Lewis Hamilton and McLaren for 2013 season, 2008 world champion move to Mercedes F1 team. 2012 Sauber speedy Sergio Perez set McLaren race seat.

Wide-ranging changes from the mid-runners teams and back-runners, seven further seats already changing hands over the winter, and one more seat available in Force India, also recent reports said Adrian Sutil will back with Silverstone squad for this season.

Martin Brundle joined with Sky Sports’ coverage at the end of 2011 following the BBC’s decision to relinquish their rights to show half of the following season’s races live due to budgetary constraints.

“It’s sad isn’t it, but it’s the business. I’ve always said it’s really hard to get to Formula 1 and it’s even harder to stay there. Brundle said.

“They all had their chances to shine. Maybe that sounds a bit brutal, but they had their chances to shine. Just like when I got kicked out of F1, you had your chances, nothing else was there and it’s about the fresh blood.” He added.
