i´m aware its the 107% rule we are discussing ,but if we are already there in the middle of selection process ,I think it is fair to say the tender has lead to :
Ifthere was no tender in 2009 ,we would still have :
who would bet on Stefan being able to pay for anything let alone get the toyota started up..
so in effect the tender produced one team less then we could have seen
so my view is in this field with recources capped it is possible to open the door for all and if the total number of cars is excessive you have to find some ways of prequaly to distribute the slots available.
This tender process does nothing good ,it produced one total disaster, one half ,only a guy like colles could turn that one around..and only with help of bernie ,I guess..
but in all honesty I want the new teams to climb up the ranks quickly .So give them more freedom to sort out their issues .
wavers for a limited time .. be it weight..(haha ..they are too heavy anyways I hear) or more freedom with setup changes after qualy.
But I would tie them down to 105 % So they really have to stretch themselves from the word go or they have to match at least pole time of GP2 ..
