Well, i like the idea to reduce cost for the teams but this 40 Mio isn´t realy helpfull. Team with an own engine should get more i think. Teams like Brawn just by there engines and doesn´t need to test these so much like the pruducer. From my point of view it should allowed that teams with own engines been allowed to test +20% and can spend more money for it. Sure the teams who by these engines have the problems that this one isn´t create for there car and so they must fix it but creating both with 40 Mio and minimized testdays isn´t realy fair enough. However, lots of teams  been against this rule. BMW, Renault, Mercedes..... looks like it make only sence for Brawn GP and Force India lol

As there is an engine freeze in force since a few years Mercedes, Ferrari, ... just have to produce those engines, there is no developement on engines. And the 40milion is WITHOUT the cost for the engines (also without marketing costs and some other things)!

Quote from: Autosport
The FIA confirmed that the budget cap would run from January 1 to December 31, with the £40 million figure covering all team expenditure, with certain exceptions.

Most notable among these is that engine costs will not be included in the budget capped expenditure for 2010.

Also excluded from the budget cap are marketing and hospitality, driver pay, fines and penalties imposed by the FIA, anything that teams can demonstrate has no influence on its on-track performance and dividends paid from profits relating to participation in the championship.

Yeah, but of course there are enough (new/young) drivers that are willing to pay for a F1 seat :)
