Whilst not particularly objective, the lady makes a fair point. Being lapped twice at a comparatively long circuit like Albert Park does not bode well for the rest of the season.

Bernie cannot afford to lose too many teams so the most practical solution would be for Marussia and Caterham to become feeder teams exactly like Toro Rosso, to the leading teams.

Pick a any one from Ferrari, Maclaren or Mercedes.

bit insulting really. 3 new teams joined on the understanding there would be a budget cap and then the goalposts were moved. Bernie was desperate to get them in as people like honda/bmw/toyota were hitting the ejector seat. now things are stable he has started saying things like 'we only need 10 teams.'
obviously clueless bbc lady has joined on on the bashing session.
