Former F1 driver Martin Brundle says Christian Horner and Red Bull are “on the ropes”, and he ‘fully expects’ Toto Wolff and Zak Brown to “keep punching”.
Former F1 driver and Sky Sports pundit Martin Brundle says the FIA’s confirmation of Red Bull’s 2021 budget cap breach has put Red Bull and team boss Christian Horner “on the ropes”, and he expects rivals to “keep punching”.
“Christian and Red Bull are on the ropes over this,” Brundle said.
“And I fully expect Toto [Wolff] and Zak [Brown] and others to keep punching, because they have got them on the ropes. That is the nature of this little crucible we live in.”
Brundle also criticized the FIA’s definition of a ‘minor breach’ of the budget cap, which is a breach under 5%, as it can go up to $7.25million.

“Minor breach is wrong because everybody is super upset about £432,000. A minor breach goes up to $7.25million, a full year’s development budget, clearly makes no sense.
“A breach is a breach, there should be a rounding number, $100-200,000 maximum and then you have got to justify it.
“It has got to be the way, otherwise the terminology suggests it is not very serious,” the Briton concluded.
