The annual list of Formula 1 team budgets has again been published, with the top-four all set to spend in excess of €400 million this year, it is claimed.
The information - complied by Business Book GP
and reported by Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo
earlier this summer - alleges that Red Bull Racing spend the most, with a budget of €468.7m, €1.3 more than the current pace-setters, Mercedes.
McLaren Honda comes in third, apparently getting through €465m this year, while Ferrari has a budget of €418m and Williams survives on less than halve that, €186.4m. Lotus, Toro Rosso and Force India all spend between €139.1m to €129.7m, with Sauber then on just over €100m and Manor, unsurprisingly on the smallest budget, just €83m.
In total all ten teams will spend almost €2600m in 2015.
The full breakdown is below - the figures in brackets show income from sponsors, then partners and then from TV/FOM...
