Which is to be blamed upon the teams. Horner some months ago crying about inevitable let go's if the budget cap would be introduced. Well.. euh.. duhhh.. ofcourse there will be people who lose their jobs. But it is the team in therst place who decided to hire 43 valve cap technicians instead of 1.
Liberty should just enforce the budget cap without any concessions. Teams will shudder. People will lose their job. Thats the price F1 teams will have to pay for having lead this exorbitant lifestyle all these years. And yes, Liberty/FOM/FIA is the one to bame not to have closed this down earlier. But teams will keep this up, so something has to be done.
I've said it before, but I'll repeat myself, the total cost of the sport of having 10 teams spending $100M is $1Billion. Now rather than people lose jobs you could spend the $1Billion on 13 teams spending $77m each or 15 teams spending $67M each. OK a budget cap may cost some people jobs in the short term, although in the long term it would save more, but the other effect could be you end up spreading the expertise out with more small teams and a better, financially healthier sport.
