Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz wants Red Bull to get “important enough” penalty, “to take the appetite away from overspending two or three million on next year’s car”.
Ahead of the United States Grand Prix, Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz was very blunt when asked about his thoughts on Red Bull’s 2021 budget cap breach.
“I think every team and every driver, we just want clarity first of all, and second, fairness,” Sainz said.
“We all know how much one-two-three-four, I don’t know the number, million can make to car development and car speed in F1.
“That’s why a few years ago all the top teams were spending $350m, and now we’re spending $150m to keep these things under control.

“I just hope that if there’s a penalty, the penalty is relatively important enough to take the appetite away from overspending two or three million on next year’s car, because you think next year’s car is worth it more than the other year, and then you take a penalty for it.
“I just think it needs to be fair play for everyone, and if there’s a cost cap it needs to be followed.
“And I just hope the FIA takes the right decision to make sure everyone follows it,” the Spaniard concluded.
