We are talking about which car is better MGP vs Renault, not if R31 is a race winning car.

So the argument of Renault doing more with less doesn't really work...
I see these figures flying round on forums yet i've never seen a direct estimate from a reliable source, can you post one? It was also rumored in 2010 Mercs budget was 180M so how would it be cut so drastic to fodder levels.
In 2010, the Merc budget was 80M, announced by Mercedes Central themselves. This year, they did an announcement saying they would reduce the budget by 10%, but without specifying the figure, hence the 72M. But maybe this whole money question is worthy of a specific thread.
By comparison, Renault is about 86M, Ferrari, RBR and McLaren closer to 200M.
