Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz says Red Bull has developed their car “more than we expected that you could do in a budget cap situation”.

While the FIA confirmed that Red Bull has breached the 2021 budget cap, Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz says his team had trouble keeping up with the Austrian team’s development rate in 2022.

Asked if Max Verstappen was able to run away with the championship due to an error on Ferrari’s part of Red Bull’s development rate, Sainz alluded to a possible budget cap breach.

“If I knew, I would already have the solution,” the Spaniard said.

“I think during a Formula 1 year it is normally a combination of both, but normally, Red Bull moving ahead and us, obviously, trying to keep up on development.

“But they have developed the car a lot, more than we expected that you could do in a budget cap situation. They have been developing just incredibly fast and fast-moving.

“We try to keep up but sometimes it is difficult,” Sainz concluded.
