Lewis Hamilton says he has “full confidence in Mohammed Ben Sulayem in the way that he’s conducted himself to this point and in terms of being strict and being clear with the rules”.

Yesterday, Auto Motor und Sport and Gazzetta Dello Sport reported that there is talk in the paddock that Red Bull has breached the 2021 budget cap.

The story has since been widely reported across the F1 media, with reports saying that the breach can be classified as ‘material’, which is a harsher offense.

At the post Singapore Grand Prix Qualifying press conference Lewis Hamilton was asked to give his thought on the issue.

“I’m not really giving it much attention, to be honest,” the Briton said.

“It’s all whispers at the moment, I don’t know enough about it to be able to make a sensible comment.

“I’m not thinking particularly anything. I’m proud of my team for the diligence that they’ve done to run to the rules.

“And I honestly, I have full confidence in Mohammed [Ben Sulayem, FIA president] in the way that he’s conducted himself to this point and in terms of being strict and being clear with the rules.

“The rules are rules and for those sort of things, which can lead to real alterations in terms of car performance, those sorts of things, we definitely have to take it seriously.

“But as I said, I don’t know if it’s true or not so we’ll see,” Hamilton concluded.
