Should F1 drivers race for every team?

Is it possible to make Formula 1 drivers swap between all the teams over a season? Will fuel-saving be more aggressive this year with faster cars? And should teams become stakeholders in F1? These questions, and more, are answered by our resident expert

To ensure F1 creates real spectator interest, regardless of whether they are fascinated by the technology, should we have a 24-race series with 12 teams and 24 drivers, with each driver racing for each team twice each season and races allocated by lottery? The drivers would be under contract to F1 and would race largely for prize money. Drivers would progress to F1 through a recognised development stairway.
