F1 » Wirth: Without F1 budget cap, I'd sooner stick pins in my eyes

Virgin Racing technical director Nick Wirth explains that only one thing tempted him back to F1 a decade on from his disillusioned exit - the promise that for the first time in years, brains can again triumph over big bucks

Much respect to the guy for being an engineer first and foremost and not a sad F1 junkie(take note Mr Gascoigne).He talks a lot of sense and i expect the Virgin Manor car to be a tidy,innovative design much like the Simtecs nick was behind.

He's better book an appointment at his optician, his eyes will be sore soon.

nothing has been agreed has it ?

Hope he's right though and throwing huge sums at it doesn't always give you success....Toyota....and probably Man City take note :p

"Money, he insists, is not what it is about in the end what really matters is the way you choose to spend it".

Although I agree with the bulk of his arguement, you get a bit tired of this statement being regularly trotted out. If money is not what matters, then why push for the cap?

This bloke needs to run the show, like his attitude also motogp and wsb IMO need to do the same. remove all rider/driver aids let them run as many engines as they want let them do what they want but with a budget cap.
