Martin Brundle insists Red Bull deserve a harsh punishment for their ‘minor breach’ of F1’s £114m spending cap, claiming teams could exploit the system by ‘overspending a bit, paying a fine to go a tenth or two faster’

Martin Brundle believes Red Bull deserve a harsh punishment after breaching their 2021 budget cap. Brundle insists Red Bull should not get off lightly following their rules breach, calling for a ‘hard’ penalty to be sanctioned. ‘What seems crazy to me is that a minor breach can be up to 5% overspend on the cost cap. The team boss will be saying, ‘why didn’t you do this? Brundle went on to add that he believes it should be the team principals who should be held responsible for keeping their team spending in line. Red Bull have previously maintained that when they submitted their accounts in March they were under budget – by a margin of more than £3million.
