Re: £40 Million Budget Cap

My mistake with the testing in season but is it something that will be coming as the guy's that work in the teams normally have December off paid to make up for working the circuits and not having time at home/holiday.
I wonder if it all those test team members/race team members that have been made redundant will be able to sneak in under the budget cap as a contractor booked to do building maintenance ? .

You only have to look at the vast sums of money spent in F1 to wonder if the whole circus has let it's suppliers overcharge for equipment and services has created the huge budgets by doing so in the pursuit of speed.

With Brawn using Eddie Stobart to move it's kit around how long will it be before the rest of the teams look using him ?

That will look great on tv loads of Eddies trucks on the front of the transporters. Just like being in the services on any UK motorway !!! (Sm91)
