I never liked Max Mosley but he was on to something, I think it was in 2011 - 2012
I cant remember the exact figures but it comes down to rewarding teams that could manage the budget cap.
Rewarding the team technically, example being able to run under the minimum weight
So its like a boost in performance. If you can run a team @ 150 million a year your minimum weight can be 40 - 50kg lighter than top team.
Except that if you run on a low budged you won't be able to reach that weight.
Thank you for the response Diogo
I think you are right, it's something Mr. Brawn must look at for the new rules. What else do you think the FIA can use to boost a team? Weight is just one point of many whereby FIA can open up the rules a bit for a team that operates inside budget cap.
Maybe fuel flow?
