Having a smaller team win, can do nothing but good things for the series. There's already a possibility that LOLA might be entering a car next season. And there's also Peter Windsor's US-based team. If more teams have a legit chance of winning. Then I think it won't be long before you see a 26-car grid again. Keep the costs down, while keeping the parity up. The better teams will still be able to find ways to advance with a limited budget. McLaren gets a suspended 3-race ban for the Lewis Hamilton incident @ Melbourne.
