Ferrari calls for strict control of 2022 budget


With all the new regulations in force this season, the teams have encountered a major challenge. To implement all these new features, the teams’ budget was set at $140 million. In doing so, not all teams have been able to implement all the desired improvements.

Scuderia Ferrari is concerned about this cap. Throughout the season, the teams will seek to develop their single-seaters as much as possible. But with such a financial limit, Ferrari fears that teams will find a way to exploit these rules to fatten the budget.

Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has explained his concerns.

“It will influence the rate of development. » said Mattia Binotto about the budget cap. “I think that’s a key element and I’m concerned because we have to make sure we have the right policy on that, because it can be a game-changer in the fight for development. »he revealed.

More advanced strategies

For Christian Horner, team principal of Red Bull, the teams will have to be much more strategic and selective in their choices.

“I think almost every team is close to the limit this year. » Horner said. “It’s very aggressive so you have to be very strategic in your distribution of funds for development. I think that instead of just driving as much as possible and looking for the maximum performance from the car, you have to be much more selective in what you choose, depending on the costs. To make it effective. ».
