We've been patient with the team, waiting for them to develop, but to reach their third year in such a mess makes it hard to feel that it will ever go right. Karthikeyan's driving was a disgrace, and de la Rosa just wasn't fast enough. Do we really need these no-hopers anymore? Marussuia weren't much better.

money buys time though, they're stuck for cash which hinders the development..
the 107% rule ought to be stuck to for sure.. but there will always be a team at the back of the grid and the team at the back of the grid over the last 2 seasons statistically has been virgin /marussia.
without back of the grid teams the sport would suffer.. Alonso started at Minardi, the backmarkers of their day..

Teams shouldn't even be allowed to turn up and try to qualify unless they've been to a certain amount of tests.

That would stop this sort of farce.
