We've had a two years of really exiting racing and Buttons year was great too but that was because it was Button who came out of the blue and stole the crown. The season didn't have a lot of classic moments like the last two. But there is a problem: it is impossible for the lesser teams to get anywhere so we have three main teams fighting and the rest have no chance. Is there something to do to make the field more even? Budget cuts and limits is one way but that can be so easily countered by these gigantic teams. They can simply divide their programs so that the F1 department don't use any money for developement and some obscure factory department is doing all the work. They can do it and are doing it. My solution would be to implement weight penalties. Not a lot, maybe 10-15% more weight for the top runner and divide that thru the whole field. The last team/driver would have no penalties then. The difference is minute but so are the differences in speed. The top teams would still be at the front but that way the lesser teams could have some chance of getting in to the points. Now they have to fight to even be able to race as sponsors won't invest large sums to teams that won't make any headlines. There is also one factor that would increase the enjoyment of the race; the top teams would have to manage fuel consumption a lot more. They would have to put the absolute minimum of fuel on board while the weaker teams could use full power thru the whole race. There are a lot of holes in this theory, i would like to hear what they are and what do you guys think would decrease the perfomance gap to allow more point finishes in a season, more winners too. The goal is to make the championship season more even, now if one team is ahead, it stays ahead. What i fear is another 2000-2004 where the challenge just didn't seem to be present. Schumacher and the Ferrari would've anyway win, only with a smaller margin. I don't mind RBR and Vettel winning every race just as long as there is at least a chance for others. And without McLaren winning everything in the late 80's we would not have the legend today that gives these teams the Royal Crown to wear, that x-factor (i hate that expression but it works...) why we almost worship them.
