Dietrich Mateschitz: Red Bull punishment for breaking F1 rules delayed after co-owner death

However, team principal Christian Horner still insists that the team were were “significantly below the cap”. A statement from Red Bull said the “next steps are on hold until further notice”. Details of the breach agreement offered to Red Bull have not been made public. Horner said in a news conference before Mateschitz’s death on Saturday that “what is in contention with the FIA is a couple of hundred thousand dollars”. Horner implied that the issue that had tripped up Red Bull was an interpretation of what costs should be considered within the spending limit and what should be excluded. Horner said: “What you got to look at is: what are the relevant costs within the cap and what’s outside of the cap? That’s where the interpretation comes from and our view is that our relevant costs are within the cap.
