Tesla should enter. Pit stop. Four fresh tires. Insert fresh battery. Hit plaid speed button. Done.

Interesting way to do it I think. Porsche coming in to basically stick their badge on the Red Bull engines, while Audi are just going to buy an existing team.

I was hoping for more cars on the grid. Alas.

Porsche and Audi are the same company.  And Porsche will have zero problem finding the engine hole.

i keep hearing people talk about adding more teams and more cars, but I'm not sure most of the tracks can handle that many more.

qualifying is already as much a test of navigating traffic as it is being fastest.

It will shut down after ten laps until the driver pays for a software upgrade.  If it doesn't catch fire first.

It is not about grid space.  Most tracks have far more teams running during the WEC or other events.  The real issue is money.  More teams means sharing the same pot of money so there is less for everyone.  That is why there is such a barrier to entry, the existing teams don't want to give up the money. So they are happy to maintain the same size field and simply switch owners and badging as that doesn't affect the bottom line for the teams.

The only reason that the Monaco race is sacrosanct is because of the enormous opportunity of the beautiful people to launder money. The "race" almost always stinks, mostly because the cars are way too long today, and any track still using Armco should be dropped.
OK, the only other reason was to see Kimi walk to his yacht for a beer, and he's retired now.
