It had to happen sooner or later. 2017 sees F1 saying farewell to Bernie Ecclestone as a new era in Formula 1 begins with Liberty Media.

Bernie transformed F1 into one of the largest sports in the world over the last 40 years and will be missed. He was often criticised for not doing more to embrace social media and digital entertainment platforms to reach a wider and younger fanbase, but perhaps that was part of making F1 attractive to a buyer such as Liberty Media.

Under the leadership of Chase Carey we wait to see what innovations Liberty Media will bring to enhance F1 and if the much talked about opportunity in the US market can become a reality.

In recent years the sport of Formula 1 has seen young drivers make their way onto the grid. This year Max Verstappen is planned to make his debut in Australia at the age of 17 Years, 5 Months, 13 Days.

Of the current generation a number of drivers have proven that teenage drivers are capable of establishing themselves with in the sport. The following list of drivers all started their F1 careers while still teenagers, not a bad list!

  • Fernando Alonso
  • Filipe Massa
  • Sebastian Vettel
  • Jaime Alguersuari
  • Daniil Kvyat

Irrespective, the FIA has now deemed that drivers have to be 18 years or older to qualify for a super licence, all drivers in F1 require such a licence. Additionally the driver must have competed in at least 2 full seasons in feeder series.

So lock the name Max Verstappen away for trivia nights as it appears he will have the honour of being the youngest driver to start a Formula 1 race, for eternity.

Testing will shortly start for the 2019 season. New rules for aerodynamics mean new opportunities to find performance.
