- Minor breach equates to less than 5% overspend of the cap
- FIA has not revealed punishment for the breach
The FIA has ruled that Red Bull did exceed the budget cap for the 2021 season. Formula One’s governing body has concluded its assessments of all the teams’ budget submissions for last season and found, as was alleged at the Singapore Grand Prix, that Red Bull had committed what the FIA referred to as a “minor breach” of the stipulated $145m (£127m) ceiling.
Aston Martin were found to have committed a procedural breach of the cap, amounting to an error on forms, not going over the permitted spend.
