Christian Horner was asked what the proposed penalty is that the FIA have given to Red Bull for their cost cap breach, and he took the opportunity to take a shot at Ferrari.

It is understood that Red Bull is currently discussing whether to accept the ‘Accepted Breach Agreement’, which the FIA has proposed regarding the team’s 2021 budget cap breach.

If the team accepts this agreement, they will also accept the penalty that the FIA has proposed, however, this penalty has not been revealed to the public yet.

At the United States Grand Prix Saturday press conference, Christian Horner was asked if he could reveal what the proposed penalty is.

“I can’t tell you that obviously,” Horner said.

“It’s a confidential discussion between ourselves and the FIA.

“What I will say is that once, hopefully, this situation is concluded there will be complete transparency and I will talk you through the reasoning behind our submission and the position that we had, as to why we felt that each of the line items that have been challenged we believe there’s a contrary position.”

Horner then took the opportunity to take a shot a Ferrari for their ‘behind closed doors’ deal with the FIA regarding their 2019 engine, which was deemed to be illegal.

“[The budget cap situation] should be transparent. The whole thing should be transparent. There’s going to be no private, you know, secret deal. I think it would all be absolutely above board.

“This is very different to a previous situation,” Horner concluded.
