One potential solution to the problem of blooding new talent would be for leading F1 teams to run a third car. The suggestion is not a new one but it will be discussed again in the coming week.
"There are more talented drivers in F1 then we have seats," Toto said. "Pascal (Wehrlein) deserves a chance and if you look at experienced drivers and young drivers you can say that Kimi Räikkönen deserves to be in Ferrari, as does Charles Leclerc.
"With Esteban (Ocon), in July he had two firm offers on the table, contracts there, and decided for one, but then they forgot about what they offered. Then things accelerated. McLaren signed Carlos Sainz, who also deserves to be in F1.
"I like the idea of third cars because the more cars we have in the field the more opportunity we give to exciting drivers to fight in a competitive car against experienced drivers. It would create great stories and would be easier access for talent, but we've had quite some pushback to the idea for reasons I respect.
"We've looked at various scenarios. You could even let them participate in practice and qualifying and let them do their own race if people feel that meddling in the Championship is not right. Or don't let them score constructors' points, just drivers' points.
"There would be many fantastic and exciting ways to integrate them on the grid but you have to respect that if some teams are not up for it, it's difficult to implement.
"Personally I would just really enjoy it. Have a third Mercedes and put Pascal in there, or George (Russell) or Esteban, and just see what they are able to do. Because I think a third car would be very easy to finance - putting another brand on the car and giving it a different livery and story. It would be easier to market a junior driver who drives in a Mercedes or a Ferrari."
Sounds great, doesn't it? But, sadly, don't hold your breath. As Toto said, with a smile, "Maybe it's better I don't say anything and someone else brings it up..."
