When teams have 500+ research and development personnel, to say they cannot afford an extra 60-80 personnel for a second set of race mechanics, race engineers & logistics is farcical.

There is no reason why the race crews cannot be divided into two sets with 12 race meetings each.

One worries merely that the F1 teams would rather, selfishly, spend their budget cap on R&D for go fast bits than two sets of race crews... Almost as if car performance is their number one priority [ruddy garagiste spirit showing up those inefficient contintental teams ].

There's 6 days of pre-season testing that are not strictly necessary. Those could be cut, saving two race meetings worth of effort. Go straight to the first race with untested vehicles, much more uncertainty and excitement.

Banning testing encourages teams to invest in advanced dynos (e.g., $40m AVL dynos) and car-in-the-loop simulators, so the use of dynos and simulators could also be banned.

The majority of cost, after all, goes to non-racing activities like research and development. Improving and making continual prototypes being far more expensive than mass production. Just racing cars themselves, and using the same parts for years and years particularly, however can be quite cost controlled (refer Indycar or F2). There were, if I am not mistaken, huge economies of scale with the Cosworth DFV being both mass-produced and used for nearly 15 seasons of F1 racing. So such economies of scale would be the goal.

Teams also have huge motorhomes which are unnecessary and could be banned.

Pitstops could be reduced to 6 personnel like F2 instead of 20 personnel. Easy saving there.

Tyre blankets will be banned in 2024, but that could be brought forward.

Gearbox and engine changes during the race meeting could be banned, as now they are now not just building the car on Thursday with an older engine and older gearbox, but then rebuilding it again on Friday night with the different race engine and race gearbox. This is unnecessary.

Lots of things where saving could be done.

Haas confirm ‘solid, reliable racer’ Nico Hulkenberg for 2023

Less than half an hour after announcing Mick Schumacher’s exit, Guenther Steiner named Nico Hulkenberg as the German’s replacement for the 2023 season.

The Hulk's back! Now they have two experienced drivers next year, so it should be good. Feel a bit sorry for Mick though, but that's the business of motorsport

Mick has had 2 seasons, and has occasionally shone but not often enough and occasionally messed up, which is understandable for a rookie. 1st season must have been difficult in what was by far the worst car, with no experienced teammate to help.

I dont think that this is the last we will see of him in F1. If I were Mercedes, I would employ him as reserve driver ahead of Ricciardo.

Hulkenburg has always been a good driver. Has 3 years of only sporadic F1 appearances done him any harm, or will he slot straight back in I wonder?

Lol

I suspect he is not coming back as a pay driver either which is awesome and while my personal preference, would prefer to see seats at this end of the grid going to new and/or younger drivers, i also don’t want that seat going to a rich kid with minimal talent.

Not a knock on Mick as I thought he always put in maximum effort always and still have hope that his determination will see him back…but rightfully so this is a tough sport.

Clearly Haas has brought Hulkenberg back to allow him to extend one of his most famous records out of the reach of others. That is his 179 race starts without ever standing on the podium.

I think I posted somewhere here on this forum that I don't expect we will see Hulkenberg back in F1 as a regular driver. I honestly am shocked by Haas doing this. Not that Mick is the right answer, but I do think Hulkenberg is the wrong answer. But for Haas' sake, I really hope I am wrong.

£2 million a season to race in FIA F2, and you get passed over for a safe pair of hands.

I like Hulkenberg, but I think this is wrong. The pathway to F1 is blocked by people who've already had a go and been found wanting. Hopefully he'll prove us all wrong, Haas will build a Brawn 001-alike and Hulk will win the WDC.

There again...

Beau2 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I find this to be a totally bizarre backwards step by Haas. Schumacher Jr has been ok imo - just as good as any other rookie that has come into the sport in the last 2-3 seasons. Sure, he hasn't set the world alight but nor have Zhou Guanyu, Tsunoda etc.
I actually think Haas have let Mick down this season, particularly in the mid-late part where they seemed to be making strategic mistakes at every race where Mick was ahead of Magnussen. He'd easily done enough to get himself another season and Magnussen is no slouch either.
However, it was pretty obvious that Mick was going as soon as Steiner started making toxic comments at the mid-point of the season, and frankly I think Mick is better not being in that environment. Sadly, Haas are destined the fail and picking Hulkenberg just demonstrates their lack of ambition or long term plan.

I can understand them wanting to replace Mick, but why not try out another young talent instead? To me it makes no sense at all to bring Hulkenberg in, he's been proven to be solidly average and is likely slower than Mick on pure race pace. This just feels like a massive missed opportunity to A) Develop Mick or B) Bring in another young driver.
Magnussen & Hulkenberg is just completely uninspired and is really not much different at all to Magnussen & Grosjean - who lets not forget both got replaced because they were neither good nor rich enough.

I think there thinking is reverting back to what they were doing when they had Magnussen and Grosjean. Which was to have two relatively experienced (but not top or promising new) drivers in which they would not need to "hold hands" or do any other "driver development" tasks. It seems to be a relatively short term focus issue. Maybe do like before which is focus on the car (development, feedback, etc. and take the driver out of the question.... Hulkenberg is a very known quantity). And they want MORE than just what Magnussen gives them in this area.

I believe damage costs were a substantial amount, and thus issue. Especially as Haas get invoiced by Dallara direct.

Out of curiosity - why would getting invoiced direct (as opposed to any other arrangement between supplier and customer) make any difference?
