Raising F1 budget cap would ‘tilt playing field’, claims Alpine team chief

With the cap intended to level the playing field, Szafnauer said teams are using claims of inflationary pressure as a smokescreen to spend more looking for performance and that he and others will attempt to prevent any regulation change. It was welcomed by the midfield teams who in most cases were already spending below the cap. “If it wasn’t going in the right direction the big teams now wouldn’t be crying to increase it,” he said. He contends they would have planned for those pressures and that teams were once more seeking a performance advantage or to spend to solve issues with their cars.
