Budgets and Expenses in Formula1
In March 2007, F1 Racing published its annual estimates of spending by Formula One teams. The total spending of all eleven teams in 2006 was estimated at $2.9 billion.
This was broken down as follows;
  • Toyota $418.5 Million
  • Ferrari $406.5 M
  • McLaren $402 M
  • Honda $380.5 M
  • BMW Sauber $355 M
  • Renault $324 M
  • Red Bull $252 M
  • Williams $195.5 M
  • Midland F1/Spyker-MF1 $120 M
  • Toro Rosso $75 M, and
  • Super Aguri $57 M
Costs vary greatly from team to team; in 2006 teams such as Honda, Toyota, McLaren-Mercedes and Ferrari are estimated to have spent approximately $200 million on engines, Renault spent approximately $125 million and Cosworth's 2006 V8 was developed for $15 million.

In contrast to the 2006 season on which these figures are based, the 2007 sporting regulations ban all performance related engine development.
