Formula 1: A fine against Red Bull – the opponent is useless

Moderate budget rule Zoff

A fine against Red Bull – the discount is useless

The Formula 1 racing team Red Bull Racing has admitted it overstepped its budget a bit in 2021 and is therefore escaping a relatively light penalty.

Red Bull has to pay $7 million to exceed the 2021 budget limit – which is limited in the wind tunnel period.

World Champion Max Verstappen’s team has to pay $7 million and lose ten percent of development time in the wind tunnel over the next twelve months. This was announced by the FIA, the World Automobile Federation, on the Friday before the Mexican Grand Prix (Sunday 9:00pm CET/sky).

In addition, Red Bull made procedural errors, which Aston Martin has also been accused of. A penalty kick against Sebastian Vettel’s team is due to be announced later on Friday. Both teams had previously reached an agreement with the FIA, the so-called acceptable breach agreement is an admission of guilt and prevents tougher penalties from being imposed.
