Red Bull found guilty of 'minor' budget cap breach as team waits on FIA punishment
READ MORE: Michael Masi was 'involved in confusing rule' which saw Max Verstappen clinch F1 title“The FIA cost cap administration notes that all competitors acted at all times in a spirit of good faith and cooperation throughout the process. The FIA would also note that with respect to this first year of the application of the financial regulations the intervention of the FIA cost cap administration has been limited to reviewing the submissions made by the competitors and that no full formal investigations were launched.“The FIA cost cap administration is currently determining the appropriate course of action to be taken under the financial regulations with respect to Aston Martin and Red Bull and further information will be communicated in compliance with the regulations.”Verstappen claimed his first world title last year, securing the victory over Lewis Hamilton in dramatic circumstances in the season finale in Abu Dhabi, before retaining the title this year after winning a shortened Japanese Grand Prix - which also saw chaos ensue after initial confusion.Heavy downpours meant the Suzuka race was limited to just 29 laps, which resulted in confusion over whether full points would be handed to Verstappen following his win, and after that was the case - the Dutchman was announced world champion for a second time.But with his title this year a formality, Red Bull had come under scrutiny in the last couple of weeks with reports suggesting the F1 giants had gone over the cost cap that had been introduced at the start of last season.
