OPINION: F1 should welcome the new Andretti team

For the first time in a long time, Formula 1 is flirting with the idea of expanding its grid. Under the right circumstances, I think it would be a good idea. The pinnacle of motorsport has begun to feel a little stale, and the introduction of a brand-new team could provide a much-needed freshen-up. We haven’t had a new team join F1 since Haas arrived in 2016, and while it’s true we don’t really want a repeat of the shenanigans we had with the terrible trio of Hispania, Lotus and Virgin back in 2010, a new face in the paddock should be seen as an opportunity rather than a risk.
