Formula 1 budget cap row: Mercedes and Ferrari comments ‘unacceptable’ – Red Bull

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says he is “absolutely confident” his team did not breach Formula 1’s budget cap in 2021. Horner said: “We stand 100% behind the submission that we are below the cap.”. Horner said the process of governing body the FIA assessing Red Bull’s accounts was “ongoing” and that the team were “a little bit taken aback” by the comments. Mercedes and Ferrari both said they believed one team had broken the cap by a large amount and the other by a smaller one. Horner said: “The facts are that it is a private submission to the FIA. “So how on earth can any team know the detail of our submission? Mercedes and Ferrari rejected Horner’s request to withdraw their remarks. Ferrari sporting director Laurent Mekies echoed Wolff’s remarks on Friday in saying it was”no secret” two teams had breached the cap. For a material breach, the possibility of banning a team or driver from an entire championship is included. Alfa Romeo team boss Frederic Vasseur said: “We can’t jeopardise the budget cap.
