Well, Max Moseley was ousted because he wanted the spending cap. But Ferrari banded with Renault, and Mclaren to threaten to form a breakaway series. So the FIA did not want that so they ousted Moseley and took on Ferrari man Jean Todt instead.

Had the spending cap been in place at $40 million per year, all the teams would be able to afford to pay drivers. To put $40 milion inperspective, Indycar car is about $12 millon per car for a top team. Nascar is about 16 million for a top team.
