I very much sympathize with Glock on this matter, but when you think about it pay drivers are not a result of the economy but rather the fact you have teams like Mclaren, Ferrari and Red Bull who command high R&D budgets which essentially price other teams out of competition, the end result is that other teams need to seek out pay drivers in an effort to provide a measure of equalibrium on the grid. Its for this reason why support the idea of a budget cap because it does to two things: 1) lower the threshold for teams with mid-to-lower budgets and 2)destroy the current pecking order and make the grid even more competitive. Sadly though with the signals ferrari, mclaren and red bull have been sending in regards to a buget cap its obvious that this would never come to fruitation and simpily because these teams clearly like beating up on the little guys. For the record, this isn't a problem with F1 but it has became huge problem in MotoGP especially in the wake of Aprilia, KR Proton, K
