The team finishing last in the constructors' championship will no longer receive 'prize money', under a new directive guided by F1's flotation plans.

Bernie is trying do do anything and everything he can so when the time comes nobody can take over the sport because everything he is doing is for a reason and that being when he dies F1 will die with him

owen. unfortunately there have been suggestions of this in the ast,with ferrari eading the way, but bernie than reaises that without ferrari, he has nothing, an gives them a igger slice, to plaate them. this years conribution is higher percentage wise, than previous!

but it seems mad that the final team or two, get nothing. after all, even though they are not the best, at least they are trying.

That is so wrong surely the smaller teams need the cash more but this is F1 and nothing makes sense but enjoy caterhams last year in F1 as they won't be able to afford to return in 2014 or the story of them becoming a joint team with marrusia or what ever its called more likely.

Makes no sense at all this. If you want to discourage the current backmarkers and put anyone off from having more than 10 teams then this is the way to go....daft, not like there's not enough money swilling about in F1

Caterham and Marussia had to merge their teams and money before the start of the season. In this way they would have more resources to try to break into the midfield and fewer costs, because they would build just two cars instead of four. In any case they would take the 10th prize for granted.

This is to make F1 more appealing to car manufacturers. Less cars means more visibility. And there will be more money for midpack teams, that in turn would make the midpack squads more appealing to manudacturers who can buy them to setup works teams.
