Niki Lauda hopes Formula 1 soon throws up some more usual results in order to gain a better perspective on the 2012 season. In a move which many fans could disagree with, having revelled in the unpredictable start to the campaign, the former double Champion spoke after Monaco.
“It was very interesting in the beginning, we all were surprised,” the Austrian, who won the world title for Ferrari in 1975 and 1977, as well as with McLaren in 1984, is quoted as saying by Reuters.
“But if this continues...then we will lose spectators or interest because the main public wants to see the World Champions winning.
“We need two races with known winners and then the crazy stuff can start again.”
In Monte Carlo, Mark Webber became the sixth winner from the opening six races of a season for the first time in F1 history. However, that did confirm that the record number of consecutive different race winners (nine) can no longer be beaten in the string dating back to 2011, as he was also victorious at the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix.
