One advantage with MSA formula over BRDC formula 4 is that if you win the title you are 25% of the way to a super licence. this is going to appeal to all of the F1 minded drivers. anyone finishing in the top 5 will get points and this could be crucial in a few years time.

Don't count on this point scheme in its current form Renault are way too powerful.

Worth pointing out that unless someone is planning on going from MSA Formula straight to F1 (bearing in mind that 15-year-olds won't be able to following the 'Verstappen rule'), they'll more than likely rack up enough points during their time in F3/GP3 and FR3.5/GP2 to discard the 'National F4 Championships' allocation. The 15-year-old hotshots will still be making their F1 debuts well before their 20th birthdays

Personally I donít think itís a disadvantage to BRDC F4 that MSA Formula receives points towards the F1 Superlicence. Drivers at this level are making their first steps into single-seater racing and itís extremely unlikely that theyíre going to graduate from F4 to F1 in three years, making any points scored in MSA Formula redundant. Points scored in GP3/F3 and GP2 will be much more important so I donít think points will be much of a factor when deciding which series to run in.

Teams had to place a cash deposit to secure a car - how much was the deposit?

21 entries yes, but only 8 drivers.

The problem is that people will think it is an advantage. The chances of anyone actually needing the points from F4 are almost zero but if you are 16 and think you are good enough to get to F1 in 3 years will you have the mentality of getting the super licence points ASAP!! Also, assuming you don't have your own money what is more appealing to sponsors? Or is sponsorship so non existent in low formulas nowadays?

Entry-level championships usually don't make a lot of announcements months before the start. We are "lucky" MSA and BRDC are competing each other, that's why we have 8-10 confirmed drivers for each championship. But, I only know one-one driver of the French, SMP and Italian championships and also just a couple of ADAC F4. There are still tests to be run and budgets to pull together. There is nothing to worry about at this point.

It appears there is lots to worry about in MSA Formula.

The Carlin team are taking this very seriously. 12 of a crew, two MSA cars, a training car (because the MSA cars do not seem to run for long) Artic, and a pile of tyres, I counted 120.

They will be visiting a circuit near you. Seen them at Rockingham, Knockhill and Croft.

Even with his extra experience relative to the others, I'm sure he will be given a hard time. I can't see any one person running away with this at the moment, there's some very strong talent in the field, unlike the last few years of 'Formula Ford'.

The fact so many are jumping over straight from karting makes it extra exciting. Dan Ticktum is particularly intriguing because he tested BRDC F4 at the end of last year and was more than competent in that.

Autosport saying twenty cars is possible. That's a far shout from the 32.
