The Cost of F1

When you see how much Williams lost by their poor performance in 2013, you can see why the smaller teams struggle - they went from an 11m profit for what was effectively their 2012 season to a 44m loss due to poor 2013 season results:

A couple of bad seasons in a row would effectively derail any non manufacturer team completely. Can you imagine how McLaren must be feeling at the moment with the prospect of not much more than 2 packets of crisps and a pint of lager as payment for the 2015 season. They had better get the performance sorted quickly.

McLaren must already be feeling the pinch, there's barely a single sponsor on their cars or overalls!

Yes, but there is not an equal share for all teams, irrespective of performance in the preceding season. Hence Ferrari under-achieved for years but still got a huge payment every year for turning up.

Not sure how well McLaren's bread is buttered

I wonder whose fault it is that F1 is so expensive. Not this nice old man's that's for sure;

Bernie continues to devide and conquer.
On the one hand he says the costs are too expensive, then....

"Monza's contract to host one of the sport's oldest races expires next year and Ecclestone has previously said the circuit needs to pay more money to secure a new deal. "

One thing's for sure, Bernie will look after his own interests first, then consider the interests of others in F1

Did you watch? He's clearly a big fan of Jean Todt...
