I am still curious as to whether they should have allowed all cars to have a go.

I think there's a great tension between letting them have a go at the possible 21 points for the season, the risk of throwing away Top 10 race points with a bad pit stop or accident and the undesired strain on the limited engine life.

Based on the first race it seems that they'll only take the risk if it's low and there's a natural opportunity, such as racing for a position.

I'd love to see one of the mid tier teams, or a top team at the back of the pack, "steal" the point from a Top 10 team in the dying laps - they'd probably get some great publicity for doing so. Sadly, even this is out of the reach of Williams at the moment, but we can live in hope!
