Formula 1: Red Bull ask for FIA inquiry into Aston Martin design amid ‘copying’ claims

Red Bull have asked Formula 1’s governing body to launch an inquiry into what they say is Aston Martin copying their car. Aston Martin have produced an extensive upgrade of their car for this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix which bears a striking resemblance to Red Bull’s design. Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said he wanted to know whether Aston Martin have stolen their intellectual property. Aston Martin said the FIA had confirmed it was “legitimate independent work”. Aston Martin have been struggling close to the back so far this season, while Red Bull are contesting the world championship with Ferrari. An Aston Martin spokesperson said: “We have shared details of our update with the FIA technical people. It said both Red Bull and Aston Martin had collaborated in the investigation, which “confirmed that no wrongdoing had been committed”.
