F1 is supposed to be about the best teams and drivers. I'm not so much againts limiting some budgets but to allow almost no testing of the cars after so MANY rule changes in one year is retarded. Changes to cars were supposed to increase overtaking, not happening. Do you really think the best drivers are winning? This is a dissapointing year, it seems like the tallest midget of a team is winning by default. KERS has turned out to be a joke as no one can figure it out and has provided no advantage to cars without it.
How stupid does Honda look after Brawn GP picked up their team and has almost won every race.... although they are using a Mclaren engine now.
DISSAPOINTING???...the more teams capable of winning the more exciting the racing, I'm sorry but what made the '80s F1 so much more exciting was the fact that at one point you had 5 teams capable of winning (Williams, McLaren, Lotus, Renault, Brabham) and 5 world champions duking it out every race (Rosberg, Prost, Senna, Mansell and Piquet)
As far as testing, hey everyone had the exact same amount of it, fair is fair...if my team (Ferrari) chose to spend their time and efforts on perfecting the '08 car instead of putting more into the '09 then so be it, they (and McLaren) made their choice...so many rule changes...what about the years they changed for turbo cars to a mix of turbo and normally aspirated + the ability to refuel (remember Mansell and Piquet running out of fuel in the last lap of a race) or traction control, launch control, tunnels in the underside, ground effects....F1 is about the best engineering + the best drivers....
I agree, KERS has turned out to be a joke, so what???what about the years when Lotus and Williams active suspension completely dominated the field, or when you had a decade of V8's running when everyone knew fully well the turbo 6 cylinders would eat them up on the track???
Also, do you think Hamilton would've won a championship and all those races in his first two years if he had started with, say...Super Aguri??? (Like Senna did almost winning a race while driving for Toleman)...if anything, right now, all the electronics make it hard to know who really is the best drivers since it seems ANY driver put into a Ferrari or a McLaren in the past 3 or 4 years could win a race (big exception is Alonso, although I'm not a fan of his, he's winning me over by, quite honestly driving the wheels of the Renault which is far from competitive).
Sorry to get off on a rant...but F1 has been my passion for a long time, and I think it's great that some of the other members of the field are having their day like in the old days when a privateer actually had a chance of winning the Championship.
