Although there have been several complaints in recent weeks about F1’s spate of winners, Giancarlo Fisichella reckons the show has “definitely benefited” from it
Six races into this year’s Championship and Formula One has already witnessed six different drivers claim victories.
Added to that only one team, Red Bull, has two race wins to its tally while just two drivers, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, have been on the podium three times.
As a result Alonso is leading the standings on 76 points, however, five drivers are within a race victory of his tally.
The ever-changing face of grands prix has prompted some criticism of late with drivers saying fans want more consistency.
Ferrari’s Fisichella, though, believes it has been good for the sport.
“There has never been a season as hard-fought as this year’s with six different winners in the first six races,” he said during a visit to Moscow.
“The show has definitely benefited from that - even if the top teams in the title race are still the same and Ferrari is one of those.”
The Roman has also joined Ferrari in throwing his support behind Felipe Massa, who he says “showed his real talent in the race in Monaco.
“I’m sure Felipe will return to fighting for wins in the coming races. Naturally I am cheering for both of them.”
