Why Ferrari receive millions more than any other F1 team

Scuderia Ferrari will receive the biggest amount of any Formula 1 team for its efforts in the 2015 F1 season, despite they only made second in the constructors’ championship.

According to Autosport, The Italian outfit will get $192m – the biggest pay-cheque for their results in 2015 — more than any other team. Ferrari is the only team receives an additional payment of $70million for long standing team.

Mercedes, who beat Ferrari to last year’s Constructors’ Championship, collected the second-highest amount, $171m.

By contrast, Manor, who finished bottom of the standings, are understood to receive $47m.

Here is a diagram which shows how the money is distributed among teams and the stake holders (CVC & other shareholders) – The diagram originally appeared at Veteran F1 journalist Joe Saward’s blog in last year.

Speaking to Sky Sports F1 at the Bahrain GP, Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone said he would not have any qualms if the near $1 billion prize pot was divided up differently in future, but suggested “Ferrari is Formula 1” and still warranted a special status.

“As far as we’re concerned, this year we will pay the teams collectively close on a billion dollars,” Ecclestone said.

“So it really wouldn’t make any difference to us who gets that money. No difference at all.

“If it’s shared equally it’s alright. If it’s shared in a way like Ferrari benefit a bit because they’ve been racing a lot longer than anybody else … and in the end, Ferrari is Formula 1, so they should be [paid more].

“If we were pop people I’d want to have The Rolling Stones because they’re the number one.”
