    The better car theme has a bit vaned.

    Really?

    There’s a rule in place that only defending champ cannot have another B team, but everyone else can?
    I dunno man. Google it. Find out why the other teams didn’t let Merc buy Force India.

    1. It'd be ironic if he did b/c the rule was instated after his Belgian GP antics.
    2. It'd be terrible if he did b/c Ferrouche is next in line for Haas.
    acket.

    Okay, so it's the smaller independent teams who are against Mercedes..., but isn't this too little too late? RB and Ferrari are already doing this...

    McLaren itself should've done this. Not necessarily just to have a B-team, but have 2 A-teams with different management, engineers, drivers and engines. So you know where you are fucking up at least!

    Point is B-team concept is already happening and you can't really stop it anymore. Might as well have that rather than allowing rich folks buying rides for their rich kids. Racing should be based on merit, not based on how deep your pocket is. Williams being where they are is somewhat understandable. However, McLaren with sufficient funding being where they are is not excusable. Might as well allocated some of their funding to finance the FI team. If they don't want that, at least allow Mercedes to do it.

    Anyway, hope Strolls know what they're doing.

    Money rules all. There are no rags to riches modern F1 driver stories.

    I understand that. Not that I have anything against money..., I have no problems with Toyota wasting billions and got little to show for, however, I just don't like to see paid drivers occupying limited # of seats. That can't be good for the sport, right?

    Mercedes 'sponsoring' FI will give that team a much better long term future and allow more worthy drivers to have racing seats.

    McLaren and Williams ought to fix their own problems 1st before worrying about other independent teams.

    Renault can just collaborate with McLaren closely and figure out themselves which team is the A team and which is B.

    For the manufacturer, it's win win either way. For the independent teams, if you don't have enough money and talent to beat the factory team, maybe you should just go race Indycars.

    Hamilton most certainly did not start out a poor farm boy living in the middle of the road in a rolled up newspaper licking the road clean with his tongue.

    He most certainly grew up not wanting for anything.

    Anyway, Hamilton for sure got to where he is by merit.
