The Ocelot team principle has respond back to Formula Virtual CEO Nic Morley following his earlier comments about introducing a budget cap to the sport. ''Now I see how spending 3 million a race can be seen as a budget cap but what I meant was allowing every team to be given the same amount of money to start off with, say every team starts with 25 million to develop their car, i think this would be more level than having it roll on every year as we've seen the bigger strand teams stay at the front because they have so much cash.''
Sure Downton have been behind a few seasons back but that's only because they have been saving their cash for a season of being at the front, the difference is sure all teams can do this but what I was trying to say was why not have every team start with the same amount of utilities and cash? So it's a surprise to see so many different teams be in a shout for the world title rather than say DS, Franklin who have been at the front since the series inception because they have the cash from previous championships.''
''Meaning that when fighting for a title its not for the sake of cash but because of the honor of having your name remembered in a part of history. I personally would just like to see what the series would be like if we gave every team the same resources and we saw the skills of the drivers rather than it be determined by how much cash a team has. Call it crazy but I guess the best analogy for my idea is that the sport is currently capitalist and I'd like to see it turn more towards a socialist structure.''
''However with that said, I think Nic has been doing an excellent job with running the series and admire him for what he has done for both us and the sport.''
