the RB empire has a huge adverting reach and as long as F1 is watched by hundreds of millions then its a question of where they get the better return, traditional advertising or owning an F1 team. arguably they could get the same reach by just being an F1 sponsor.

i'll see if i can find the article but i believe it was Joe Saward who was recently making this point that the RBR budget is still less then the cost of traditional advertising relative to the number of people/markets reached via the F1 team.

similar logic to the RB advertising point but RBR has won titles so i do think you are right that its a title that makes it worth it.

still curious to see how Honda get treated. i sense that Mclaren doesnt command the same level of influence as they used and without a strong partner team any foray into F1 will be uphill.
