A thought struck me last night that with the rumoured budget cap coming into force there will be a need to cut workforces in the top teams, whilst there is clearly too few cars on the F1 grid these days.

How about letting the big boys fund new 'B' teams (not current teams already on the grid) which could be limited to a lower budget cap of say 50% - or even less - of the main entry cap?

This could have the effect of adding to the grid numbers, offering younger drivers a step up to F1 and soaking up the pool of personnel laid off due to the original cap.

Sure this is bound to p*ss off the so called mid field teams, but they'll just have to up their game to stay ahead of these young and hungry 'B' teams.

Yeah I know there is an argument against having 2 or 3 tiers in F1, however haven't we really had two tier racing for years. I'm not suggesting different points for the 'B' teams, but they could introduce a rookie drivers championship prize of some sort

I reckon it could add a whole lot to the excitement at races with a larger grid, and more importantly make sure the F1 budget cap doesn't put a lot of good people out of work.

A huge congratulation to the Toyota Gazoo Racing team for finishing 1 & 2 at the 2019 Le Man 24 hours.
This makes Ferd the only person to have two F1 championships, a Monaco win and Le Man win twice.
I'm confident he will get the Indy win he wants and join the small group to have hit the triple crown.

United Airlines is sending ground crews to NASCAR pit stop school in the belief they can learn how to shave time off aircraft turnaround at airports.

Roman Grosjean had to chase some home invaders out of his Geneva home. The incident happened after he & his family returned from Montreal. Luckily they were all unharmed.

Lewis being able to start to the race was 'touch and go' overnight according to admissions now from Merc.

Whilst we all knew there was some kind of hydraulic issue and Mercedes was finalising a fix on the start grid, very few knew how big the problem was.
Not sure I could have slept overnight before the race with the big question unanswered - will the car make the grid?  :swoon:

What an a*se! No wonder he gets on so well with Vertsappen - they both talk rubbish and think everything is someone else's fault!
This is possibly the most outrageous thing I have heard from a team principal. He is questioning the integrity of Mercedes, Liberty and the Stewards. Why on earth would any of them (especially the stewards) favour Mercedes?

In latest race standings Vettel gets 0 points for anyone who placed him from 1st to 4th.

I'm pretty sure he was given as 2nd in official race results, or have the FIA chucked him out for ungentlemanly conduct.

Would serve him right if they have.  :P
