F1 2015 team budgets published

An up-to-date list of F1 team budgets has been published, revealing just what each team will spend during the 2015 season
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...

F1 2015 team budgets:

1. Red Bull Racing (€266m + €35.7m + €167m) = €468.7m
2. Mercedes (€122m + €212.4m + €133m) = €467.4m
3. McLaren Honda (€144.5m + €216.5m + €104m) = €465m
4. Ferrari (€208.5m + €34.5m + €175m) = €418m
5. Williams (€52.5m + €22.9m + €111m) = €186.4m
6. Lotus (€69.5m + €13.6m + €56m) = €139.1m
7. Toro Rosso (€68m + €9.45m + €60m) = €137.45m
8. Force India (€49.5m + €12.2m + €68m) = €129.7m
9. Sauber (€44m + €9.25m + €50m) = €103.25m
10. Manor (€0.5m + €32.5m + €50m) = €83m

TOTALS: (€1025m + €599m +€974m) = €2598m

While one can never trust the accuracy of estimates such as these, it is clear that top teams spend hundreds of millions and even the back markers spend considerable to be involved in F1. I enjoy the spectacle but really, extremely high budgets to run 3 to 6 seconds quicker than a GP2 car. F1 will likely never completely reconcile whether it is a spectator sport or a test bed for the highest technologies, whether they make sense or not. I suspect a GP 2 car with 100 more horsepower, better aero and suspension, and better brakes, would provide an equally good or better show at a fraction of the cost. Wish there was a way back to the days of sanity.

unfortunately these figures do not tell the full story. for instance, merc also spent hundreds of millions on their engine, whereas rbr cost includes payment for engines. and then ferrari...what costs were absorbed by fca?
