No they aren't. Budget caps cannot be enforced. Take Ferrari, with some creative accounting they can hide research within Chrysler. RedBull can hide some in "Drinks Advertising" and McLaren an hide it in research for the ECU deal they just did with NASCAR.

The RRA cannot be enforced. It's done on goodfaith alone and lets be honest, this is F1...

Budget caps! what a croc! this is the peak of racing because of its technical dependence and sorry, but technology costs money! so we are in an economic crisis atm, isn't that self regulating on costs? if the sponsors don't have the cash then the teams can't spend it. hopefully, when the economies recover and cash is more available anybudget caps will look a joke. maybe the answer is to ban sponsorship completely! that way the small teams with limited sponsors wouldn't be at a disadvantage

On one side is a budget cap, relaxed technical specifications, and probable stability for F1. On the other side is spec racing and extravagant wastefulness (hotels, hookers, and heroine).

Race fans choose the latter b/c "this is F1"? WTF is that supposed to mean?

It's a wonder F1 hasn't already collapsed. The fans are bigger knobs than the people in charge.
