I miss controversies over a team having a component that gives them an advantage. Oh wait.
How many teams, apart from the three new ones, are actually new teams and not evolutions of the 2006 teams? Obviously I’d prefer Minardi to Toro Rosso but we can’t have both. All I can think of is Super Aguri and Toyota.
Although the spread of engines throughout the grid is good this year:
3 Teams have Ferrari (Ferrari, Sauber and STR)
3 Teams have Mercedes(Mercedes, Mercedes and FI)
3 Teams have Renault (Renault, Lotus and RedBull)
3 Teams have Cosworth(Williams, HRT and Virgin)
I’m still hoping we get 4cyl/V6 turbo engines after the rule chage and that it tempts new companies, like VW who are itching to start in F1, and who might drag BMW back in to have a German battle along with Merc too, and the Japanese might want to come back with Honda/Toyota coming for more road relevant tech. None of this will happen with ‘just keeping V8s.’
