financial rules explained amid huge row that could see Lewis Hamilton crowned 2021 champ instead of Max Verstappen

FORMULA ONE is set for one of the biggest rows in years which could yet see Lewis Hamilton crowned as 2021 F1 world champion. This Wednesday, the sport’s governing body [FIA] will publish their investigation into teams’ spending during last season. The FIA have outlined strict penalties for breaking the rules, including disqualifying teams and drivers from last year’s championship. Now, the FIA have the accounts, which have all passed through auditors, they will be able to establish whether teams have spent more than they should have done. While the list of penalties include points deductions for teams and drivers, there is a growing feeling it will be a financial penalty. Should a team accept that punishment then they would be issued the certificate on the proviso of paying the fine.
