sure if the tax man told me how to only pay a fraction of what i do i would be delighted.
but if he told me the solution to fire the majority of my co workers well i would be slow to do that.
the teams have become huge.
dropping the budget to 10% of what some teams spend is basically asking you to fire 90% of your staff.
imagine going to work and firing 9 out of every 10 people.
( ok it may not be that high but your forcing teams to do that)
Well I don't really no for sure but in my line of work our business salary costs is around 40-50% of our total expenditure. For F1 I would guess this proportion is probably lower once you exlcude the driver since their is quite a lot of expenditure on materials, capital expenditure, R&D etc. So if we can say as an average teams are spending someting in the vacinity of 150M pounds I would guess their salary expenses might be 40-50M pounds excluding drivers.
