miffy, couldn't you really say the same thing about the top 3 or 4 teams? If you eliminated them, the racing would be closer from the front of the field to the back. The big teams don't often bring new drivers into the sport, and are the ones that make it necessary to spend crazy amounts of money.

I say let anyone who can build a car that can pass the safety tests and meets the 107% time in.

@Pinky: Swedish...?
the way you wrote AGS:
Automobile's Gonfaronezu-Suporutibu
is tipically Japanese pronounciation into "Romanji", ie using only syllales to make it work
(as taxi=takushi, here sportive=suporutibu)
I never saw Automobile Gonfaronnaise Sportive (as AGS as the team was then called) written this way!

I think that loss of HRT (and the other tailender teams) is a bad thing, my personal view is that we will end up with a ten-car grid if the economics aren't gotten hold of.
If racing teams could get over the romance of the brand, Indycar would be a great alternative to F1. I know nowt about F1 economics but I know a fair bit about them in US racing, and a single car team running mid-pack with the occasional lucky podium needs 15m USD to survive, another 5m USD for a second car. Makes F1 look a bit sick when folk talk about this 40m GBP 'cap'.
