F1 'cannot adjust cost cap based on crashes' - Steiner

F1 'cannot adjust cost cap based on crashes' - Steiner

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has claimed F1 should not back down on its strict cost cap simply to factor in crash damage.

For the first time, F1 is racing under a strict $145million cost cap with teams required to simultaneously develop cars for the current season and the new for 2022 aerodynamic regulations.

Although it is accepted crashes happen, Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has called on the FIA to "revisit" what lies within the cap.

Steiner, however, disagrees with this assessment.

“No. I think we need to live with that, we need to budget for this," said Steiner. "We need to be flexible enough.

“That is good management because then all of a sudden if we have fewer crashes, do we bring it down again so we adjust it for how many crashes we have got?

“I think it is part of racing and will be part of how much risk you take in a race and whatever you do.

“So I think it is part of racing the crashes. You cannot adjust the budget or regulation on how many crashes you have got because for me, it doesn’t feel like any change is needed on this one.”

What do you think?
Gbeeeshhh

Horner simply has been on a trajectory created by the genius of the man called Newey. Has no maturity in the real world of F1, but that of a misplaced identity in the outside world of reality.
