Promising juniors in short supply according F1 pundits
May 21 - There is a shortage of really promising talents coming up the ranks towards Formula 1.
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.
Former F1 driver Robert Doornbos added: "I agree."
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.
"Even if you look at Formula 2, Mick Schumacher and Mazepin were race winners but they're not really in it in Formula 1, so it is a bad moment in that regard," he said.
