That still baffles me; I can't understand it. I remember when they first entered and all the breakages they were having on the rougher events..fast forward x years later and some of the same things (I may be mistaken on this) are still breaking on the tougher events. Is it a deliberate engineering philosophy or an inability to conduct proper root cause analysis and learn from it? Who knows!

I fear we may lose a manufacturer sooner rather than later and then the championship will look very hollow indeed. Sad. There doesn't seem to a queue of manufacturers queuing to enter for the last 10+ yrs it seems. Are the promoters and FIA even actively courting manufacturers? A serious rethink in needed before the whole think collapses in on itself.
