I have seen it very different, with Ferrari top at $500 million...
all I could find was in 2004
$ 79,200,000 Jordan
$ 78,800,000 Jaguar
$ 39,600,000 Minardi
and in 1999
Ferrari's budget was at $225 million; McLaren $125 million, Jaguar/Stewart and Williams $105 million, Benetton $80 million, Prost and Sauber $60 million each, Jordan $55 million, Minardi $50 million and Arrows just $35 million. Benetton's figure was hardest to calculate as they were still a full owned subsidiary of the Benetton group of companies at that time.
I wouldnt of thought Ferrari would have lowered there budget by so much, or honda raised it by so much... I think it goes to show how hard the budget cap would be...
Including Kimi's salary [$75 million per season i.e. several millions dollars per race?], Ferrari has to be the richest/best backed.
