Remark of the working day

Does Purple Bull’s connection with AlphaTauri give them an benefit their rivals do not have?

Certainly these sort of steps go towards the spirit of the guidelines and at minimum towards the spirit of the price range cap guidelines. I’m not confident if the latest guidelines allow for these sort of steps, but they should not: one particular staff sacrificing its individual general performance in get to advantage an additional staff.

(And no, I am not suggesting that Purple Bull or AlphaTauri broke any guidelines. In any situation, this was ahead of the price range cap guidelines. But if this loophole continue to exists, it must be fastened. Usually Ferrari and Mercedes could invest in their individual sister groups and bypass price range guidelines.) @Hotbottoms
