How To Test A Formula One Driver's Skill

Gerard ElliottCorrespondent ISeptember 6, 2008

So some of you may have read my Lewis Hamilton report. To be exact, it was 972 of you.

I have a way where the FIA can make sure that only talented DRIVERS win races and championships and not talented CARS.

OK, so here's my plan. All cars will have exactly the same HP engine and the same weight. The only way in which manufactures will have freedom will be the aerodynamics of the car.

This method will set out the Lewis Hamiltons of the world with the Jenson Buttons. If this became a genuine law in F1, real drivers would be able to shine through instead of good cars.

Bring these laws in, and let's see if Felipe Massa is as good as Anthony Davidson when put in very similar cars.
