Well, it’s an idea really, mostly wondering if there has been any case in the past to illustrate it. The question arose of course from the current situation of Renault engine, it makes me a bit pessimistic about the performances of the teams and how much these teams will be damaged. Sure there gone be differences between engines, but not at this level.
Anyway, I really hope they can solve it pretty soon.
I like the idea of rewarding rather than punishing. Reward teams that make longer use of engines, gearboxes, brakes … whatever. In the current situation the big teams are still capable of winning because of outspending the smaller ones. So let’s try give some reward to the smaller teams with points for example. If teams manage to use the same spec of brakes, gearboxes, etc. reward them with incremental points for each weekend.
What is more interesting to me is their driving style. I am no expert in identifying the differences, so someone could put some light on how they like the car. If there are differences, then there lies the real problem, what route would Ferrari follow? If they drive the same way, then Ferrari could become unbeatable, big could of course.
