Budget cap gamble paid off for Alfa Romeo

Sauber-run Alfa Romeo appears to have benefitted in more ways than one by taking more control of its Swiss-based Formula 1 team. “The problem is the sum the FIA agreed with the teams – it’s very high. “Doing it ourselves doesn’t matter as much to us as the FIA and the big teams claim,” Monchaux explained. For instance, had Sauber continued to buy the Ferrari gearbox and suspension, the team’s budget cap for 2022 would have dropped from $140 million to $130m. Meanwhile, Monchaux says Alfa Romeo is proud of apparently being the only team on the 2022 grid with a car that actually meets the minimum total weight.
