By matured, I mean more available to the masses. When they are all unique, mass production is redundant, but when they are all the same, it becomes economically feasible.
If F1 teams want to be self sufficient for money, they should diversify into component manufacture for the manufacturers. Like Williams making the F2 Chassis, and so forth.
Is it really necessary for each team to carry the full load of a part that is within .001% of all others, and more likely identical in many cases?
I understand giving the teams the ability to improve their way through a season, but if Max has his way, we are all going to be watching these cars start at Oz in 2012 as a spec co-developed chassis, and watch them all take different paths of evolution of a few areas of the car. The last race of the season will be 13 teams with distinctive cars.
I hope that his talk of just capping the expenditure, and letting anything go for under $50M is the best route personally, but only time will tell.
