Max Verstappen continues to claim Red Bull is not guilty of the 2021 cost cap breach, and gets questioned on how the controversy will affect him.
Reports have started coming in that Red Bull has agreed to enter into an ‘Accepted Breach Agreement’ with the FIA regarding their 2021 cost cap breach.
The official confirmation and the details are expected to be announced on Friday, ahead of the Mexican Grand Prix first free practice.
On Thursday, however, Max Verstappen was asked if he was surprised that the FIA had judged that Red Bull was in breach of the cap.
“It’s just a bit frustrating,” the Dutchman said.
“From our side we feel like we are not wrong. Just some things are taken into the budget cap which are very unexpected, but we’ll have to deal with it.
“It’s not up to me to decide what’s right.”

It was then put to Verstappen by journalists that some might use the cost cap breach, in addition to the controversial finish of the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as something that would move the focus away from his performance in last season.
“They are sore anyway, so it doesn’t matter what you say or what you do,” Verstappen said.
Asked if he can just brush off such claims, the Dutch driver said:
“From my side, I can. Probably they can’t and they will never be able to.
“So that’s a problem for them to deal with,” he concluded.
