F1 cost row Structural change in Formula 1 is on the horizon. As the cost/income equation continues to get wildly out of kilter, there are smoke signals suggesting both a legal challenge and that the governing body might be recognising that it needs to act. “It’s a joke what the teams have suggested,” said FIA President Jean Todt on the matter of F1 cost controls. “The budgets are in the hundreds...
