Real Madrid has emerged from the UEFA standings as the top team of the decade and not unjustly, having won the European Championship four times since 2010.

With Zinedine Zidane on the bench, they have won three consecutive season finals in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and they have been in the semifinals four more times in the last 10 years.

It is worth noting, however, that he failed to qualify beyond the “16” phase in 2010 and 2019.

The second team, Bayern Munich is just 11 points behind Real Madrid.

The Bavarians have won one title in 2013, but have reached the final twice, where they have been defeated by Chelsea and Inter and have been eliminated twice in the quarter-finals.

The third team, Barcelona, ​​has played one game less than the Germans, two less than the Madrillians and is just one point behind Bayern Munich.

The Blaugrana have won the 2011 and 2015 titles, competed in four semifinals and been eliminated four times in the “8” phase.

What about the other seven teams in the top 10

These three teams have stood out in the competition since 2010, with Juventus following their own numbers, counting 40 fewer games than Real Madrid, having been absent from the institution for two seasons (2010/11 and 2011/12). .

Juventus is continuously present as … Italy’s permanent champion with eight consecutive wins, twice in the final.

We have to get down to … half the table to find the first Premier League team and this is Manchester City. The ‘Citizens’ are nine points behind Paris Saint-Germain, with both teams not yet making it to the final.

Atletico Madrid follow in the footsteps of closing out the Spanish presence in the top ten, while Chelsea and Manchester United meet below, with the Londoners also winning one in 2012.

The Top-10 closes with a surprise team, Dinamo Zagreb.

Croatians have had the most participation in the institution in the decade (behind the Top-3) and have been absent only twice in the last decade.

In fact, Dynamo may not have managed to qualify for the group stage most of the time, but it is only two points less than the “Red Devils”.

Last but not least, Liverpool’s absence from the list is not surprising as they may have reached the final in 2018 and conquered it in 2019, but they were abscent all the previous years.

How much does a Formula 1 car cost?

Formula 1 is the “cradle” of motor sports, with original cars carrying the latest technology.

Teams of engineers, technicians and designers work through the night at factories studying solutions and testing components that they hope will give them a competitive edge. The F1 is a sport judged in the details, which means every millimeter counts.

Top teams, the ones fighting for wins and titles, usually have the biggest budget. This means they can spend more money on research, development (R&D) and testing.

Of course, there are also teams with significantly lower budgets that have made it to the top, such as the Brawn GP in 2009 (Jenson Button Drivers ‘Championship and manufacturers) and Renault in 2005, 2006 (2 Drivers’ Championships with Fernando Alonso and two manufacturers’ championships). On the other hand, the enormous funds that Toyota (2002 to 2009) and Honda (2006 to 2008) had with their own teams were not enough to give them a leading role.

Every year the cars are evolving, becoming faster, using new technologies.

But how much can a Formula 1 car cost? No one can answer this question precisely, as the cost of research and development cannot be determined.

However, an estimate can be made of how much the average components of the car cost ,as well as the overall cost.

So according to a WTF1 survey, the average cost of a F1 car is € 6.8 million.

This amount is as follows:

Front Spoiler / Tip: 170,000 euros

Floor: 66,000 euros

Steering wheel: 56,700 euros

Software / Telemetry: 84,000 euros

Rear Spoiler / DRS: 107,000 euros

Braking system: 170,000 euros

Exhaust system: 195,000 euros

Gearbox: 850,000 euros

Monocok (chassis): 1.13 million euros

Hybrid engine: EUR 4 million

So you understand that every time a car gets involved in an accident or ends up in barriers, the cost of repairs can reach a disproportionate amount, depending on the extent of the damage …
