Spending money for the sake of it
‘Drawing Board’ with Giorgio Piola and Gary Anderson is a perfect illustration of where F1 is going wrong; in the October 11 issue it was an explanation of the new floor for Ferrari, which involved huge sums of money and resource for a minimal return. Do they do it because they can due to the budgets they have available? If Ferrari et al had the restricted resources of the smaller teams, this type of nonsense would be severely curtailed.
I have written in the past about this, but it does make the heart sink when you consider where such resource could be used effectively without detriment to grand prix ‘racing’. I have also stated in the past that the designers/technicians are not building racing cars, just high-speed projectiles. Neil Davey Newport, South Wales
