So, this would eliminate the bottom teams. So much for encouraging teams to participate.
bernie has become a little meshugga
Bernie did say at the start of the season he would rather 20 to 22 drivers
Way to kill off the smaller teams, and destroy jobs, and some families income.
he is a greedy litle hobbit, uncle bernie.
Caterham/Marussia Merger initiated.
I also think that this is on the cards - however a merger last year fell in on itself.
Given the relatively low budgets of each team, it could be plausible.
If anything, I think the lower placing teams should be getting the most money so that they can catch up to the stronger teams, and provide more competition on the field. Of course there should limitations like the teams must use the money in the following season, otherwise they lose it, and the money must go into developing the car, and nothing else.
2010 - Bernie wants more teams.
2011 - Bernie gets more and more impatient with the lack of performance shown by the new teams, better known as "notorious backmarker brigade".
2012 - Bernie wants less teams now, as he is getting bored and his efforts&money go to waste(Y u no get better when I let u in teamz?!?). He performs a celebration dance when one team - The "H(ighly) R(idiculous) T(eam)" - finally folds.
2013 - Bernie keeps going his way, saying he won't give any money to everything above P10(so basically the last team in the standings), in the hope that one more time dies quickly and the failed idea of having more teams is buried soon and the dark chapter is closed.
Reason: "Because I fecking say so".
Bernie Ecclestone - Making sense in F1 ever since... not qualifying for the Monaco and British GPs in 1958.
Thank you Bernie.
So, they are going to field 20 cars...
Its because of this, im getting more and more into GT racing!
It´s a warning to the new teams. It´s been three years soon and no real improvement to move into the more established teams.
They should look at how Force India did things.
And as with everything, make sure you can actually afford it.
Scraping along year by year is not affording it in my opinion.
