- Team principal insists they did not get an unfair advantage
- Children of Red Bull employees now being bullied, says Horner
The Red Bull team principal, Christian Horner, issued a scathing attack on criticism from competitors after the FIA announced his team had breached the Formula One budget cap. Addressing a letter written last week by the McLaren principal, Zak Brown, describing any breach of the cap as “cheating”, Horner said the accusations made against the team had even led to the children of employees being bullied.
Horner was speaking publicly for the first time since the FIA announced Red Bull had been in breach of the budget cap for 2021. The FIA decision was revealed only a day after Max Verstappen secured his second F1 championship at the Japanese GP two weeks ago.
