Red Bull still competitive with budget cap penalties

Christian Horner says some of Red Bull’s rivals would still have complained even if the FIA ordered the torching of the team’s wind tunnel. “Red Bull has always had good food for free,” team boss Horner insisted. Horner, however, thinks that much of the reputational damage was caused by Red Bull’s rivals – some of whom outwardly accused the team of “cheating”. As for the claims that the penalties are not harsh enough, Horner said the reduced wind tunnel time was chosen “because they think it will hit us the hardest”. “I think that if the FIA burned our wind tunnel down it would still not be enough for our rivals.”. But even Mercedes’ Wolff thinks the sporting penalty really will hurt Red Bull.
