“We have a responsibility both as a team, because we’ve brought Logan in with very minimal amounts of testing," he said. "If you compare, for example, even to Oscar [Piastri] on the grid, Oscar [Piastri] was taking a year of just doing F1 testing [in 2022], and he’s doing an excellent job with it.
“We have a responsibility to Logan to make sure we’ve given him every opportunity to succeed, and I don’t believe we’ve done that yet, which is why my commentary is quite clear in the media.”
“I think we as a sport have a responsibility to perhaps relook at the rules and say, how do we introduce rookie drivers to it?" he added.
“You can see Liam [Lawson] will be sidelined [as a reserve driver], but I think he’s absolutely deserving of a seat on this grid.
"It’s a reflection I think of these difficult sprint race formats, followed by one-hour sessions, followed by a lack of opportunity to grow.”
