Remark of the working day

As F1 groups and the championship go again-and-forth on an Andretti entry, F1 Frog indicates that an aged product of not diluting the prize revenue – by not spending out to the eleventh workforce in the constructors globe championship – may well be a good way to determine regardless of whether groups need to get the benefits of competing:

It is way far too tricky for a workforce to get on the grid in any case in F1. If Andretti can supply two vehicles for the very first grand prix of the 12 months they need to be permitted on the grid. And if they transform up and are horrible, does that genuinely make any difference? I do not see how possessing a poor workforce lessens Formulation one in any way. It was astounding when Jules Bianchi concluded ninth for Marussia in Monaco 2014, and aside from Caterham admirers I cannot think about everyone not becoming overjoyed with that consequence, so it offers the admirers a workforce who everybody will get guiding. It would be even superior if there was two poor groups mainly because you get the struggle of the minnows, like Marussia and Caterham a ten years in the past (and even superior if HRT can be included to the blend as effectively). But as it transpires I do not consider Andretti would be the new Manor Marussia in any case.

The only explanation not to is prize revenue (developing the further garages would be nothing at all thinking of how substantially revenue Formulation one has), and except if I’m really substantially mistaken Bernie Ecclestone did not even give prize revenue to the eleventh workforce, so that is an selection if Liberty come to feel like becoming stingy (thinking of how substantially revenue they have they do not want to do this in any case).

It is preposterous how tricky it is for a new workforce to sign up for the grid, and Formulation one need to be executing far more to make it a lot easier, not indicating ‘it will not insert worth to the sport’ mainly because it will.@f1frog
