I sympathize with Razia, he's shown his worth and should have gotten a place in F1 based on merit. Others have pointed out that a car must be built and costs money. My 2 cents: since cigarette companies can't support F1 anymore there is a huge need for new sponsors with big pockets to come up. Money are needed, one can't expect to having cutting edge technology with bargain budgets. Major modern companies are reluctant to enter the game (I'm looking at google, facebook, apple, samsung, etc), so teams gather money by asking the drivers to pay up. The way I see it F1 is marketed as cutting-edge motorsport. This disregards most "modern" buzz-talk companies which can't relate in any way to the image of F1, so they won't invest. Apple has +100BN$ cash, they could buy all F1 with one year of interest! Why not give incentive to such companies to invest?
