The thing is though that you need patience in this business. How many teams have come and gone because they couldn't play the long game (hello Toyota!). Sure costs are also a defintive thing but just look at the former Minardi team: despite being always in the bottom they sticked to their guns and managed to hold on. And thank god for that they gave great drivers a chance (Alonso, Webber) and they were always one of the most liked teams.
On another note I tried my hand on a F1 music video for all the Deja vu situations we got in season 2021. Funny how much keeps somehow repeating regardless how F1 progresses
Do I understand correctly that you made this?
