Very interesting F50. Good find

Notice that in the annual costing, the engines alone work out to 5/6 or 84% of the annual costing.

But still this is only a rough cost given .. considering that the car is not crashed once ... so obviously the cost will shoot up more ....

Gerat diagram F50. Great illustration of the break up of F1 costs. This is a Jag . I guess it will be much more costlier for the top teams

What's the use of feeding a big cat that can't catch horses and can only see stars disappearing in the distance? Kidding!
Great find F50!

Great find F50.....
Imagine the amount of mechanics working for each company.
Any guesses?
