The FIA's revolutionary £40 million optional budget cap for 2010 onwards may not have gone down well with many of the top flight's existing competitors – particularly its five manufacturers – but what it does seem set to do is entice new teams and new talent into the sport.

Once the teams are decided, of course, it will then be a question of who gets to drive for them, with all manner of names in the frame and young guns desperate to get their F1 break – but who do you reckon deserves the opportunity the most?
