Lets just say many bad years…
McLaren hasn’t won a constructors championship since 1998 but did win the drivers title in 2008. Poor Williams hasn’t won either championship since 1997.
Didn’t stop them from receiving and spending hundreds of millions every year! Williams spends about $190 Million and McLaren about $210 Mill. Haas is fighting for 4th overall on a budget of only $130 Million - Impressive!
But since over 350 million viewers tune in for 2 hours broadcasts with the teams’ advertisers on their cars, equipment and uniforms, it is probably a pretty good bang for the advertising dollars.
$5 Million to run a midfield Indycar for a full season looks like a screamin’ deal but only 500K viewers tuned in even including the Indy 500.
