30 years ago, the F1 world looked very different than today. Now that Liberty Media had to ensure that the grid can be, at least the tv companies promised 20 car, Bernie Ecclestone challenge through 1989 at the beginning of a completely opposite.
the F1 series had enrolled as many as the 21 garage 40 cars. Ecclestone fortunately, the FIRST Racing team to withdraw before Brazil's opening race, but there were still record-breaking 39 cars.
Something still had to do, because the grid was only room for 26 driver.
