Why Ferrari's talent bottleneck is creating its own issues

Ferrari has five drivers on its Academy scheme in Formula 2 this year, making up 23% of the grid. But, with both its F1 seats seemingly filled for the long-term after Carlos Sainz's arrival, the Academy prospects face an almighty scrap to step up.

After fears the delayed start to the Formula 1 season could cause stagnation in the 2021 driver market, the recent shake-up has marked a welcome debunking of that theory.

Sebastian Vettel's surprise departure from Ferrari, the team' subsequent signing of Carlos Sainz Jr. as his replacement, and Daniel Ricciardo's switch to McLaren have ensured the grid will look notably different at the start of next season.
