So the FIA have decided against giving us the thirteen team grid that was promised to us for the 2010 season. They disallowed Stefan GP to compete at the expense of US F1, after deeming it too late for the Serbian outfit to gain entry.
They have now therefore looked ahead to the 2011 season in an attempt to make up for the fiasco that they made of the entry system for the current season.
In taking a more controlled and concise outlook they have offered a thirteenth place on the condition of meeting four developed targets. Those who wish to take the spot will need to fulfil these comprehensively.
Immediately US F1 and Stefan GP will look to claim this spot, although there also will be a stand by team up for grabs if either fail.
Let’s have a look then at the criteria that has been set for possible entrants and what we think is meant by each. In analysing them we can then look towards whether we think that new teams will be able to accomplish the requirements.
