Guenther Steiner Suggests Case-by-Case Approach for CapEx Spending Limit in F1
Williams’ boss, James Vowles, has been advocating for an increase in the CapEx spending limit to help smaller teams catch up. However, discussions on this matter stalled after an F1 Commission meeting.
Guenther Steiner, Team Principal of the Haas F1 Team, proposed a unique approach to address this issue. Instead of implementing a blanket increase in the CapEx limit, Steiner suggested that teams should spend up to the existing limit and then present their plans and justifications for requiring additional CapEx spending power. This case-by-case setup would allow teams to explain why they need more funds and gain approval from their fellow competitors.
