17 year old will race Formula 1 next year

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Its been some time since I've really followed F1 but I have a tremendous amount of respect for that intensity of racing.

This story about a 17 year old racing F1 has me  - :eek

That's a lot of pressure for someone so young. 

 

17-Year-Old Kid Will Race In Formula 1 Next Year

When Max Verstappen starts his first race in Formula One he will be just 17 years old, the youngest F1 driver ever. Here's how you get picked for the world's top motorsport when you're barely old enough to drive.

Yeah, I saw that earlier this week.  Well, his dad is a former F1 driver so he has some history and grounding there..and is perhaps a bit privileged in certain ways.  But yeah, it can be difficult.  I often wonder at these things..Jennifer Capriati, Michelle Wie, any number of hockey players..is it good to throw them to the wolves?  Works for some..I guess you have to hope the parents know what they're doing.  And the move to younger drivers with $$ has been a trend in F1 for a while now...
