Horner slams “draconian” penalty as Red Bull hit with £6MILLION fine and testing restrictions by FIA after F1 overspend

CHRISTIAN HORNER has slammed the “draconian penalty” dished out to his Red Bull team for breaking F1’s cost cap. Horner’s team have been slapped with a £6million fine AND a 10 percent reduction in wind-tunnel development time, which he says will cost them half a second in laptime. Horner has “begrudgingly” accepted the FIA’s punishment yet maintains his team’s submission was under the cost-limit when they submitted it in March. The Red Bull chief explained the areas where his team were accused of overspending, which included catering and sick pay. “I am astounded that there were no other teams who found themselves in this position. “What we are talking about now has not added to the performance of his car from last year.”.
