Why is Marko's approach so flawed? I'm not a fan of his but clearly the aim of Toro Rosso is to find a World Champion. Any driver short of that is a waste of space. It would be inefficient to pair a rookie with a more experienced driver, because then you can only evalute one talent at a time. Great drivers don't depend on their teammates.
If neither Buemi nor Algesuari were appraised highly enough, then it was the right decision to can them and bring in Ricciardo and Vergne - even if the latter two are worse. The point is to keep sifting. Merely 'good' drivers should be removed to continue the search for a great one.
