does it always work...of course not but the overall trajectory, imo, has been a greater number of team capable of winning. so a more successful sports league. naturally i want the same thing for F1.

i've taken a few stabs at this now...not sure i can answer it any better.
I get exactly where youíre coming from and donít necessarily disagree with you :-)

I suppose thereís a massive difference...being from Europe Ummm used to seeing massive disparities in wages....take football for instance. How is it fair that someone can earn £200k a week, play against someone who earns £200 a week......

...a lot of that comes down to talent, marketing and success.

Unfair? Probably....both players do the same job, kick the same ball, play on the same pitch, but one is more successful and therefore is far more marketable....itís all about return on investment.

The personnel at each team consists of a common 'roster', and new entrants to the sport are 'drafted'. We'd then have teams faced with the question of whether they want to spend part of their cap on a driver like Hamilton, or a designer like Newey.
Would you want to risk a deal for a Russell, or settle for the experience of a Bottas?
Ummm karting, formula Ford, formula 3, formula 2....the best drivers win I equal cars then end up in the best teams in F1.

Even in draft sports, teams have their stars.

You canít tell me that Brady, Mahomes, Crosby, Ovechkin get paid the same as a 4th liner....just like in F1, there are stars, and there are the others.

Letís not forget the effort put in to get to the top.

Itís no fluke that Hamilton beat Alonso in his rookie year....he got there on talent... sometimes I think people forget that.

Which is similar to NFL.
Players go through school, college then get drafted into the main league. Once there, the best establish themselves and then earn huge contracts.
If you compare Mahomes with Brady - KC were happy to build their roster around him, sacrificing some of their cap elsewhere. Whereas NE reached the point that they didn't want to make that sacrifice for Brady, so released him.
You could compare that with Verstappen and Hamilton. RBR may want to pay big for MV, and utilise free agents elsewhere on the roster or draft picks. Mercedes on the other hand may opt for a more balanced roster, and release LH.
You'd then have other teams deciding on if they want to make an offer to LH, or feel he is too expensive. The best drivers will always get the biggest contracts, but you may also see teams taking a punt on a driver.

Drivers' salary caps have been written about on this and other threads, and they were also discussed at today's Commission meeting, but no decision was taken as yet. Along with the matter of the proposed sprint races, it will be talked about again at further meetings.
