They can afford it, no problem. I just wonder if, with the budget caps coming in, we’re seeing the beginnings of a litigation era in F1. Essentially, if another team trashes your car and you can ‘prove’ it’s their fault, I can see teams trying to demand that the party at fault pays for the damage so it doesn’t come out their own budget. Before, they just brushed it off and pulled out the spare chassis and nothing more was said. There’s a lot more at stake for the top teams if it’s the difference between winning and losing the championship.
