Formula 1: Red Bull budget cap penalty ‘very light’, says Ferrari’s Frederic Vasseur

Ferrari team principal Frederic Vasseur says that Red Bull have done a “very good job” but the penalty they were given last October was “very low”. Red Bull have dominated the start of the 2023 season, winning all three races. Vasseur pointed out what he said was an inconsistency in the handling of three different incidents at the same corner at that final restart. Their best result is a fourth place for Sainz in the opening race in Bahrain. Drivers are allowed only three engines for an entire season, but Vasseur said that change was “as per plan” and that the strategy was to check the first engines used before reintroducing them in a race or two’s time.
