F1 LIVE: FIA confirm delay after claims Red Bull and Max Verstappen ‘off the hook’ | F1 | Sport


If Red Bull are hit with a heavy punishment, the Constructors’ Championship leaders cannot say they weren’t warned.

Back in 2019, when laying out plans to implement the associated fee cap in time for 2022, F1’s chief technical officer and managing director Ross Brawn warned teams that they’d face losing their grasp on the championship in the event that they had been found to have been in breach of the regulations.

“Financial regulations are the dramatic change in F1,” Brawn said within the official reveal at an FIA press conference in Austin, Texas.

“We’ve tried for these previously, and we’ve not been successful. I feel the crucial thing concerning the financial regulations now could be that they’re a part of the FIA regulations. So the sanctions for breaching financial regulations might be sporting penalties of some sort, depending on the severity of the breach.

“Whereas before we had the resource restriction, which was a gentlemen’s agreement between teams – well there’s not many gentlemen within the paddock I’m afraid, and that was a failure.

“But this has teeth. In the event you fraudulently breach the financial regulations, you might be losing your championship. So it has serious consequences if teams breach these regulations.”
