Dropping the engine development tokens system may not be a cure-all:

On paper scrapping the tokens is a good idea but let us not forget that this will also mean that Mercedes can develop/improve their power unit and given how they have the best as it is with a significant budget, well organized technical departments and some of the best engine people around this change may end up allowing Mercedes to pull a bigger gap rather than doing what many hope it will and simply allow the rest to catch up.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday to Tom Watson and Ian Hayward!
