Something is wrong with F1 that these minnows can be given the chance to compete yet year in, year out they are struggling even to get on the grid. Is it just too difficult for new teams nowadays?
They made it to testing the last two years, this year was completely unexpected (for whatever reason) but there doesn't seem to be any obvious problems for new teams. Caterham are doing fine.
Yes I agree like the new rule that says teams can't test until all the homologation has been passed, this was never a problem until Virgin & HRT joins F1. The FIA say they want new teams but the they put hurdles to make it harder.F1 should have 2-3 more new teams
I'm astonished testing was actually allowed with unsafe cars actually. This is a perfectly sensible rule that should of been in place years ago, especially for small teams who may be rushing production on their cars. Not being able to pass the crash tests means your car is going to be in trouble anyway.
We will see. Ultimately, who really cares? Now that Caterham have become pay driver team with Paytrov, I really don't care who wins. In fact, I would like to see Caterham fail, and Marrusia beat Caterham.
You want Caterham, a team that hired a talented wealthy driver with multiple lower series wins to replace a failing mediocre old driver, to win over Marussia, a team that has hired the third new average pay driver for the third year in the row?
