Maybe these GP2 graduates should all start out on 2 years mandatory probation, knowing they will get automatic stiff punishment for dangerous driving. If they drive okay for half a season, drop it.

And yet again we see the problem of a mixed grid!The Poor driving skills of the lower teams drivers destroying the race spectical of the red bull, ferrari and Mclaren drivers who have the common sense to race in a safe way.

Unfortunately outright speed and race craft are two completely different things! ... when we have a sport that is penalising ingenuity and development we are finding that it can be more exciting, but ultimately when you limit the ability of the best teams and drivers for the spectical you end up forcing drivers who usually run on their own into a tight midfield where anything can, and usually does happen!

I'm not Alonso's biggest fan, but without doubt he's the best there is ... My heart skipped a beat (or ten) when that happened ... I never want to see what I seen the weekend of Imola 94, or any deaths previous to that ... I don't even want to see injuries ... I want to see the best open wheel racing, amongst the best drivers in the world ... maybe we should be reconsidering the young driver programmes ... surely the cost saving can't be justified if we have the likes of Perez, Maldonado, Grosjean et al coming in and CAUSING accidents that not only cost money to fix, but also in term

Perez, Maldonado, Grosjean et al coming in and CAUSING accidents that not only cost money to fix, but also in terms of championship points, and therefore income from F1M .... well, that's just my own view ... any thoughts?

I did not know that GP2-GP3 have more lenient stewarding on wreckless driving than F1. That's just silly. As formation leagues, GP2 and GP3 should be tough on safe driving behaviour, so that when they get to the top flight, safety and respect for rules is a deep learned skill.
