“Following the passing of Mr Mateschitz, all conversations with the FIA around Cost Cap and next steps are on hold until further notice,” the team’s statement read.

“The deadline for agreement has been extended and we expect talks to pick back up middle of the week.”

It remains to be seen whether Red Bull will ultimately agree to enter into an ‘Accepted Breach Agreement’, proposed by the FIA, or if they will choose to challenge the governing organization in court.
