How much does it cost when you crash in Formula 1?

How much does it cost to a Formula 1 team when there is a crash? Is this budgeted?

Naturally it adds cost and of course it is budgeted for. There are always spare parts in Grand Prix weekends, which cost money to make and ship around the word. They are largely custom pieces, so there is not an unlimited supply. At a certain point it's a fact that there simply are not enough parts around to go racing after a few major crashes during a GP weekend.
