Upper budget limit Formula 1 during the last three races will finally come to the fore on Friday, s FIA ready to announce the sentence Red bull due to violations of financial regulations last year.
A press conference was called Mexico on Friday at 11:30 a.m. to address the issue, which is expected to reveal details of the negotiated agreement between FIA Mr Red bull.
According to the financial regulations of FIAteams can enter into an agreement with the governing body after a minor violation of the budget limit (less than five percent), but must agree to the terms of the sanction FIA and admit that they broke the rules. The settlement means the case will not go before the Cost Cap Adjudication Panel, which could result in a stiffer penalty.
The contract is likely to include a financial penalty as well as a sporting one, which is believed to limit the team’s aerodynamic testing capacity for next year. Depriving the team of points or the title was never a serious consideration, but reducing flight testing for the following year represents a significant penalty in terms of development, as Red bull it already has the lowest available quota on the sliding scale for testing aerodynamics F1 for the next year, in accordance with sports regulations – the champion has less time for testing and so on-.
On October 10 FIA announced that Red bull he committed a minor offense and has been discussing the details with the team ever since. The debates were briefly suspended last weekend at United States Grand Prix After the death of the co-owner Red bull, Dietrich Mateschitz.
Red bull would spend $1.8 million above last year’s budget cap of $145 million, but the organization said it did not intend to exceed the cap and questioned how the review FIA calculate certain items. Team sources also noted the failure to claim a $1.4 million refund from the tax authorities United Kingdom as one of the main reasons for excessive spending compared to rival teams.

Some teams also argued that spending too much last year would offer a competitive advantage in the development process for this year’s car.
“It’s a little frustrating,” he said. Max Verstappen Thursday when asked what impact the cost-limitation dispute has had on him. “For our part, we don’t think we’re wrong, but there are just a few things included in the budget constraint that are very unexpected.
“We’ll have to deal with it, but at the end of the day it’s not up to me to decide what’s right.”
