no way!
with the big teams gone....i'm done with FIA too....

the problem with FIA's budget cap....was they they gave a possible two-teir regulations (limit expense-more tech freedom OR unlimited expense-less tech freedom) this generates two sets of cars....some with more tech freedom (on design and aerodynamics)....and other don't....even with more allowance to spend money....it doen't create a fair playing field on the grid itself....

what FOTA suggests....is a gradual budget cap...like 150 mil euro in 2010, then 120 mil euro in 2011, 90 mil euro in 2112...or something like that....with just ONE SINGLE set of rules....no different technical rules for different teams.....
