Greig, you are implying aroutis is supporting a pre-emptive "assumption" ... this is a figment of your imagination. Likewise your assertion that Ferrari would have to already assume others will breach the cap. aroutis clearly hypothesises that other teams have broken the cap ... no assumption, they have breached.

    Personally I disagree with aroutis that it would be grounds for Ferrari to also breach. I think Ferrari, given this set of facts, should still do the principled thing and seek remedy and compensation for the breaches rather than following suit and also breaching the cap. IMO that would be the right thing for Ferrari to do.

    Why don't you both try and understand each other?
    If aroutis never declared Ferrari would be idiots based on his if then things would be fine....why would Ferrari be idiots for sticking to the cap they agreed on and wanted?
    Forza Ferrari

    The right question, addressed to the wrong person at the wrong time. You should have asked aroutis this before & instead of your ad hominem attack.

    Horner beating the drum for more budget, Ferrari are on side also.

    Horner's position is backed by title rivals Ferrari, world champions Mercedes and McLaren.

    But the Alfa Romeo, Alpine, Haas and Williams teams all voted against a proposal for an inflationary adjustment based on International Monetary Fund inflation figures when it was proposed last month at an F1 Commission meeting of teams, the FIA and commercial rights holder F1.

    Alpine team principal Otmar Szafnauer said: "We've set our budgets early, we kind of anticipated a little bit of the inflation. Inflation didn't just creep up on us. If we can do it, for sure others can do it too. I'm not for just increasing the cap. When freight costs go up by 2.5m or 3.5m but your development budget is 20m, can you not make your development budget 17m and still be under the cap? You can."

    "What that then does is it limits your development. So it's a lot easier, if you have the money, to go to the FIA and lobby to raise the cap and keep your development budget the same."
    Forza Ferrari
