Richard, Good points but it seems that some of those profits are segregated from the race division but I can't tell when you look at the financials for the technology section. But regardless, my point is Williams clearly run their team as a business and they have posted their audited financial statements for the past several years. The NBA, NFL, NHL and other pro sports with spending caps do something similar. MS suggests a lack of funding is a factor for the lack of success and I can't see how when they have double the staff, triple the budget, and sell engines to countless teams. I am quite as the influence of Mercedes is enormous but they could withdraw from the sport after one board meeting and a bad quarter for their road car division. Maybe Williams and a couple of other true race teams should collectively but Cosworth and develop a common engine because if Mercedes leaves the sport Pure might become an option and wouldn't that be a nightmare:)
