if they cant beat a customer team with a car they made yourself, then maybe they should walk away right!

more cars is interesting and i wonder that if RB were allowed to sell a car directly to STR/AT, would they then have enough extra money to maintain the pace of capital improvements to their facilities (spending which i believe is outside the budget cap limits) so that they could build out as well as other manus?

they already do better than Ferrari and are close to Merc as it is now.

could Mclaren, if they had customers to sell to, rise up even further?

presumably a larger grid including one with single entries buying customer cars could become the revenue source privateers like RB and Mclaren need to effectively compete against manus and their far deeper pockets?

It would be more accurate to say that Ferrari's failure this year has resulted them being second in the pecking order and it is still Mercedes first, daylight second and RB third.
