McLaren and Renault win the money race

November 23rd, 2019 · No Comments

The Renault and McLaren teams appear to have won on the race on the bottom besides their success on the track. The Renault team total income for the 2005 season reportedly was about 225 million US dollars. That does not include the cost of engine development that is covered by Renault. The Renault teams budget had increased in the 2005 season by 25 per cent but they were still able to make a profit of roughly 6 million US dollars. One thing is that in 2007 they will lose some sponsor dollars that they had received in 2005. Mild Seven is no longer involved with the team. Also those Spanish sponsorship euros have followed Alonso over to McLaren. Speaking of McLaren their reported 2005 income was roughly 215 million USD. They made a nice profit of about 12 million USD during the 2005 season.
