I'd quite like it as well

But anyway, i think as much as there's the old danger of sponsorship becoming problematic, if it's sensible then i think opening the remit up to a team rather than a constructors is good.

In some ways, having teams sponsored by people that aren't manufacturers of rifles in particular probably reduces the potential problems...

Done the right way, it can be good for sports... but obviously there's always a danger that the sport is driven to evolve away from what people may enjoy in order to satisfy a major sponsor, or pushes another just as enjoyable format into the shade.
