Why they abandon their development program specially knowing the fact that their best driver's contract based on car's performance. Even this season they will not drop their development program until Monza and if the rumours becomes reality then they certainly will drop their efforts for this season and start working full time on the next season's car. As for Jamie I only used it as a reference just to say that if he wins a single race in last half of this season he will get his full points. One more thing the hind sight of doing such kinds of simulation is that the person who do this knows all about what he wants to achieve but those who are been under observation during the process does not knows that. Alonso is the best driver on the grid at the moment because he wants to score points even in a mediocre car and thats what I think he did in his rookie year at Minardi. As for Jamie winning the WDC by having double DNF's for both the title contending teams is not impossible because FIA could do wonders. Imagine FIA banned RedBulls for using push rod suspension and Brawns for favouring one driver over another. It could happen.
Now something from F1 1982 season
The new rules for the season included an increase in the number of cars permitted to enter a Grand Prix from 30 to 34, and the number of starters from 24 to 26. To avoid having all 34 cars on the track at one time, a pre-qualifying session was introduced in which the three teams with the poorest record in the previous year would compete to be allowed into qualification proper. Three companies, Goodyear, Michelin and Avon supplied tyres, including special qualifying tyres, which provided much increased levels of grip during the qualification sessions that determined the starting order for the race.

For the first time the number of tyres permitted for qualification was limited, creating a situation which Villeneuve thought
"...unnecessarily dangerous. If I have only two chances to set a time, I need a clear track, OK? If it isn't clear, if there's someone in my way, I just have to hope he's looking in his mirrors — I mean, I can't lift, because this is my last chance."
And now from 1994 season
In order to combat the spiralling costs of running a Formula One team, and to counteract criticism that over-reliance on technology was reducing the drivers to a secondary role, sweeping rule changes were introduced for 1994, most notably banning of all electronic "driver aids" such as active suspension, anti-lock brakes, traction control and launch control.
Ayrton Senna was among several observers who said that, with such features removed but no attempt to curtail the speed of the cars, 1994 would be "a season with a lot of accidents".
1994 also saw the reintroduction of refuelling during the race for the first time since 1983, and after Ayrton Senna's crash at Imola a 10mm wooden plank was affixed to the underside of every car to prevent ground-effect advantages. Wear was permitted on the plank up to 1mm by the end of the race.
Senna spoke of Formula 1 saying "you are always exposed to danger, danger of getting hurt, danger of dying. This is your life, and you either approach it in a, in a professional, in a cool manner or you just drop it, leave it alone and don't do it anymore. And I happen to like too much what I do to just drop it, I can't drop it".sup/sup
