The Australian Grand Prix podcast In the Fast Lane has released its latest episode, featuring former F1® driver, three-time Le Mans 24 Hour winner and sports car ace, David Brabham.
Brabham joined In the Fast Lane co-hosts Matt Clayton and Michael Lamonato to talk about being part of a global motor racing dynasty, his F1® racing days with Brabham and Simtek, his success all around the world in tin-tops and the emotions of developing the Brabham BT62 in Australia.
Brabham goes on to discuss the likelihood of the Brabham name making a return to the Formula 1® grid, admitting that if the right offer were to come along he thinks it would be great to see.
“Would it be great to see Brabham back in Formula 1®? Absolutely…I think budget cap is a really good idea, it opens up a lot more opportunities for people. It’s not something that’s on my desk at the moment that’s for sure, but you never know, one day it may return back to Formula 1®,” said Brabham.
“If something in Formula 1® came up, it can’t be anything, it’s got to look right and have the right backing, because I’ve been in Formula 1 without the right backing and I’m not going to do that again so it would have to have significant funding to sway us.”
