McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl believes Red Bull’s £6million fine for breaking spending cap was too lenient, and calls Christian Horner’s defensive comments a ‘fairytale’… despite not even listening!

McLaren have become the first F1 team to hit out at Red Bull’s punishment for overspending in 2021 – insisting their rivals got away lightly. Following confirmation of the punishment, Red Bull’s team principal Christian Horner defended the team’s position in a lengthy press conference while refusing to apologise for the breach. But McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl told Sky Sports he did not follow Horner’s conference. Nine teams got it right and it was clear one team was in breach. Seidl said: ‘There’s absolutely no reason to be in breach this year. We had good discussions earlier this year with all teams, the FIA, Formula 1 regarding these topics.
