Green: 2021 Budget cap must give top teams ‘headache’

Jun.15 – Those in charge of F1’s biggest budget teams must be suffering from a « massive headache », according to Racing Point technical boss Andy Green.

While admitting to Auto Motor und Sport that the $145 million spending cap for 2021 will require some reorganisation, Green said the Silverstone based team actually has a smaller budget than that.

« Our first analysis suggests that we are keeping our philosophy, » he said.

« But we have only known these rules for four weeks and so we have to understand them in better detail, » added Green, referring to the way the rules were tweaked for the corona crisis.

But Green did admit that he is glad he is not in charge of a top team right now.

« I would have a headache, a massive headache, » he said. « But these people are not stupid. I think they already know exactly where to cut back and where the focus and core business will be in the future.

« For us, the cost cap is still above our budget. »

But even though the big teams will have to shrink in size and spending, Green is not expecting the hierarchy to immediately change.

« These things always take time to break through, » he said. « On the track, we will probably only see the first real impact in 2023. »
