One of the modifications that most attracts attention in the face of the season 2022 is the spending cap that teams may have within Formula 1, which will remove five million euros at the top of 2021 (145 million), according to the regulations in relation to last season.
However, due to the expansion of Races that will have two more weekends in 2022, the conditions will change, since the regulation only contemplates 21 tests, so there will be a budget extension that will give the 10 teams the possibility of using an extra million dollars per race, which will give 142 million as a cap for next season.
Likewise, due to the six qualifying tests under the Sprint format that will be contested in 2022, another million and a half euros could be added for each car due to the additional wear generated by a continuous effort both on Saturday and Sunday of the race.
The sum would give 143.6 million euros, practically the same budget in 2021 that gave Mercedes its eighth crown in the drivers’ championshipWhile Red Bull came up with the duo between Max Verstappen and Sergio “Checo” Pérez and Ferrari made a comeback on the podium with a great year from Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc.
