Departing AlphaTauri team principal Franz Tost is known as a man with vast experience who knows the situation on the F1 scene best. Sky Sports F1's David Croft revealed the details of the conversation with Tost, who is often direct. Namely, Franz believes that all drivers within F1 deserve their place in the paddock, except for two. Croft did not want to reveal which drivers were mentioned, as it would be unfair. Rumors about who it could be have already started on social media. In any case, Croft thinks his arguments made sense.

“I had a fabulous exchange with him in the paddock at a race,” Croft said on the Sky Sports F1 podcast, as quoted by gpfans.com!

We were just talking in general, sometimes you could get Franz when he had five or 10 minutes and just chew the cud of Formula 1 and we were talking about drivers.

He said, ‘Yeah, every single driver in this paddock deserves to be in this paddock, deserves to be in Formula 1.. except two."

"I said ‘Really? Two? And who would they be? He said, blah, blah, blah, and blah, blah, bla. I’m not going to name them, but I could not disagree with a word he said about that one.

And he then went on to explain absolutely why they really shouldn’t be in Formula 1 at the moment.

But I’m not going to tell you who because that will be unfair to those drivers.”

The next season in F1 could bring a lot of excitement and unexpected things. Many believe that Red Bull will be the main favorite next season as well, considering the dominance they had in the season behind us. In any case, we hope for an exciting season and surprises.
