Something must be done about this A and B team problem. I totally object to the concept that teams can share technology rather than designing and building their own components.
I hear that STR will be getting the rear end from Red Bull. How does that fit into the concept of a constructors championship if the majority of your car is designed by supposedly one of your championship rivals.

I can understand why teams like Williams are fed up with the lack of control in this area. Teams like Red Bull can develop parts and rather than risk running them on their cars will simply pass them off to their B team and let them take the risk. Some would say that by doing this it helps control costs in F1. Well it certainly hasn't in the past so why would it in the future.

Liberty and the FIA must stop teams from running B teams.
