I was reading an article about Indycar compared to F1 - https://www.redbull.com/gb-en/indycar-2018-reveal-should-f1-follow-indycar-lead?wtk=outbrain-uk-002126ca6e84d69b473cb73cec05b41dbf.
I personally disagree with the idea of having a single chassis for all teams, as for me that isn't what F1 is about. However, I had an idea of a 'B category', where teams wanting to compete in this category could purchase a chassis, made by a single manufacturer, and although this may not be winning championships, it would have allowed teams like Manor, Caterham etc. to have had a lower cost way of racing in F1.
Perhaps, a decent amount of prize money could be put aside for the winning team in the 'B category', which would allow them to make the jump to fight in the midfield or at the front.
What do you think?
EDIT: Having read the comments, I just wanted to make it clear, I am not saying make F1 a one-make series. I was saying it should be an option for the teams with less money to use a standardised car and engine, thus saving them money on building their car and purchasing an engine. Then, if prize money was offered to the best of these teams, they could afford to progress towards making their own, competitive car.
