    OK, so we have heard about 3 car teams but what would happen if cost cutting ever led to 1 car teams? (Im not suggesting this will ever happen) Who would go where? Would everyone keep there first diver? Who would trade up for another teams second driver? Who would be forgotten?

    Rosberg may be a bit stretched driving for two teams though :)

    3 and 1 car teams should be able to compete.

    Ferrari want 3 cars HRT struggle to keep 2 cars so they should rent out a space to Ferrari, and Ferrari can operate an F150 in the HRT livery with ‘your name here’ saying Ferrari!! But the Ferrari-HRT scores points for HRT even though it uses all the Ferrari infrastrucure.

    Just an idea.

    Nice idea! I’m going to assume 8 new teams come into the sport, because 12 car races would be rubbish, and that the changes come into effect for the start of 2012

    Red Bull – Vettel

    McLaren – Hamilton

    Ferrari – Alonso

    Mercedes – Rosberg

    Renault – Kubica

    Williams – Button

    Force India – Webber

    Sauber – Massa

    Toro Rosso – Ricciardo

    Lotus – Kovalainen

    Virgin – Barrcihello

    Hispania – Karthikeyan

    And the eight new teams…

    Red Bull Cola – Alguersuari

    Carlin – Glock

    USF1 – Lopez

    Stefan F1 – Heidfeld

    DHL Mercedes – Di Resta

    Super Aguri – Kobayashi

    Telmex Team Mexico – Perez

    Convicts GP – Sutil

    They should let one car teams participate and allow technical partnerships between such teams.

    If Ferrari want a 3 car team, they can partner with a 1 car team and provide them with a car. They can use the small team to share the burden of testing new parts without affecting the preparations of the main team. In return, the small team gets a car that is actually on par with the established teams, giving a driver new to the sport a chance to shine and the team to attract sponsors, because they aren’t a back marker.

    It’d be just like the 70s when there were a slew of small teams who were running Tyrrells, Brabhams, Shadows etc.
