New money row brewing in F1 paddock

As previously reported, some teams are calling for an adjustment to the $140 million budget cap as raging inflation hurts the team’s limited funds. “At the moment there are still three teams against it,” revealed Alpha Tauri’s team boss Franz Tost. Alfa Romeo team manager Beat Zehnder confirmed: “We’re paying 160 percent more for air freight than in 2020. The Russia-Ukraine war in particular means air freight is steadily becoming unviable, forcing the teams to rely almost exclusively on ships. He admits that the big teams are looking to increase their allowed annual budgets from $140 million to up to $148m.
