The bottleneck in F1 is purely down to economics. If the smaller teams had more cash, or the sport didn't need to generate so much to run as like in Minardis day, then younger drivers would be given more opportunities. Then you would also see talent given a greater chance rather than just those drivers with the biggest financial backing. The bottle neck is of F1s own making,not the FIAs, which is why the likes of Trulli, Schumi, Barrichelo etc are still ploughing around the tracks taking drives that could be taken up by emerging/potential talent.
