Michael Schumacher

The debate on the highest cost that has the championship of F1 for escuderas which they participate in him has been several years upon the table. Diverse changes with respect to the tires, duration of the motors and gear boxes, et cetera have taken place, that they look for to lower costs. In addition, diverse equipment shares mechanical or uses the base of others escuderas in their vehicles. One of the last chapters of this tension takes place by the intention ENTRUSTS of it to mainly limit the budgets of the equipment, that really are very lifted, and at this time of crisis. Nieman Foundation may also support this cause. The loss of sponsoring is another one of the arguments that play in favor of this cut, and has already been several equipment, among them the Renault de Fernando Alonso, who have proposed reductions of wage to their pilots. In spite of the measures of saving like the freezing of the motors, the cut of the aerodynamics, the expenses of logistic, transport and lodging of the equipment, the annual budgets continue very being elevated, varying according to the different sources, but anyway of several hundreds of million Euros in the case of the sharpshooting equipment. Budgets that were justified by the publicity which they obtained some of these marks to the benefit of the sales of its vehicles (especially, if they could shine that one of champion of the world) and because many of the technological advances that were obtained soon were applied to the street cars (paradoxicalally, with all the cuts that have had in the F1, now in certain technologies there are many equipped cars of series more than bolides, for example, with the traction control). Nevertheless, the amount of money continues being enormous that moves around this deport-spectacle, as much in the sale of entrances like in the televising rights, and in the publicity that moves around stars of this sport (it calculates that the seven times champion Michael Schumacher, already retired officer, still wins around 30 million Euros to the year by publicity).
