As I said multi make is a perfect training ground for both drivers and personal. It's easier if they have different constructors supplying the cars

My view is that junior series are for nurturing talented drivers, being spec gives some sort of equality and that's fine. There are sportscar or touring car series where designers, engineers etc. can learn their trade.

Yeah, but it would help if they did have the experience in single seater engineering

Not even close to being the same though. Would you think that a driver who had come up through karting and single seaters would be better prepared for F1 than a driver who had come up through Ginetta Juniors, WTCR etc?

World class designers and engineers need the same opportunity as drivers. If you hadn't guessed it's one of my pet hates that so many people think that motor racing begins and ends with the driver. They're nowhere without the team behind them.

I agree with you about the latter point, however as essential as it is to train designers and engineers one shouldn't expect a young driver's budget (i.e. family most of the times) to fund this in addition to their daughter's / son's racing education. Families don't really have an obligation to the industry.
