And just for the record, we posted two unrejectifications this season. Yuki Tsunoda, after a 4th place in Abu Dhabi, is no longer a reject.

With Zhou as the only incoming reject, and Giovinazzi getting the sack, it means that we should have at least five rejects going into 2022.

Gio couldn't do it either. Two points under the old system - we were so close to having him make 2019 the only reject-free season.

Wait, five rejects?
Latifi
Mazepin
Schumacher
Zhou

Who's the 5th?
Murray Walker: "A lot of people here are really debating whether Ricardo Rosset is Formula 1 material"
Martin Brundle: "Well, it's a fairly short debate, Murray".

Remove Mazepin, insert Nyck de Vries, it's only a matter of time before NdV unrejectifies himself at Alpha Tauri in 2023.

So Duck rightly corrected me: we began the 2022 season with four rejects on the grid: Nicholas Latifi, Zhou Guanyu, Mick Schumacher, and Nikita Mazepin. One of those four obviously didn't even make it to the first race, so there we go. Our only other reject to make an appearance was the magical Nyck de Vries, whose ninth was obviously not enough to lift him out of his position.

Therefore 2022 saw no unrejectifications in F1. We did see Mick Schumacher take home a sixth place in Austria, however, which was the only movement towards unrejectification for any of the aforementioned drivers.


2023 will have as its line-up of rejects: Zhou Guanyu, Nyck de Vries, Oscar Piastri, Logan Sargeant. Zhou is the only full-time reject from this year who will actually make it to next year in that case! Although we haven't seen a minute of him in action, we would assume the McLaren will be decent and that Oscar Piastri would be the first to unrejectify himself.
