We all know formula 1 loves a rule loophole... Read the rules once and read them again to see what's not mentioned.
With this in mind, I wonder if any teams are using clever loopholes to stay under the cost cap. Drivers / top 3 staff pay is not covered so are some teams overpaying their drivers and senior staff and then the driver pays for certain things such as their trainer/physio. Team manager pays for meals out for team members rather than the team itself?
What are people's thoughts? if anything like this does happen it makes a joke out of the cost cap as it costs them more due to the tax paid on the salary effectively being paid twice.
