agree peppepino. formula one is all about building the best car. the driver, i'm afraid is not as important as, for example, in NASCAR or INDYcar. If someone tries to take away this aspect, technology being more important than talent, they will kill f1 as we have known it for years and years. all the brands who have been at the top have been there because of outstanding technology plus a good driver, the best example being lotus in the 60s and 70s. remember all the great drivers suffering in a car which was not up to scratch (fittipaldi? andretti? alonso?) this is the appeal of formula one and ferrari (and mercedes and renault) are quite right to point this out to the new kids on the block.
