FIA Urged to Tighten the Screws After Red Bull’s $7 Million Cost Cap Crimes

In 2021, FIA decided to impose a budget cap to keep a check on the spending of the F1 teams. The initial figure was expected to be $175 million. However, after the COVID-19 disaster, the cost was cut down to $145 million. In 2022, this amount was brought down by another $5 million to $140 million, with an extra $1.2 million cost cap bonus.

But, with the increase in inflation and freight costs, FIA agreed to increase the budget cap by 3.1% during the Austrian GP weekend. All of this was done to encourage a more level playing field among the teams.

The line is pretty clear when it comes to budget cap infringement. If a team goes over the cost cap by 5%, it is considered material overspending. Anything below that figure, you fall in the ‘minor overspend’ category. The possible penalties in both situations can include– points deduction from the last season, exclusion from races, fines, and wind tunnel testing limitations.

Red Bull and Aston Martin are the two teams to have breached the cost cap this year around. While Aston Martin have been found to have a procedural breach, Red Bull fall in the minor overspend category.

Talking about Red Bull’s breach, Former F1 driver and commentator, Martin Brundle, said“What seems absolutely crazy to me is that a minor breach can be up to five per cent overspend on the cost cap. That is $7m and we know that is a massive upgrade on a car, maybe even a B-spec for some teams.”

“So, that needs tightening up for starters, because what is the point in having $145m and then having this five per cent variant?” Brundle added.

Christian Horner has looked like an assured figure throughout this controversy. Despite being found guilty, the team from Milton Keynes continues to insist that they have followed the rules and the problem lies in the difference in interpretations.

President Joe Biden, who is running against Trump, was briefed on the incident and spoke to Trump several hours after the shooting.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Ended Up on the Wrong Side of the Law, charged with making trouble with two policemen

NASCAR icon Dale Earnhardt Jr. and 2023 Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney were recently on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and talked about the Netflix special NASCAR: Full Speed among other things. During their conversation, Dale Jr. opened up about his traffic violations and revealed the interesting encounters that he had with 4 different police officers.

He took a trip down memory lane to remember how he got his first speeding ticket and quipped that he had received not one, but four tickets between the ages of 16 and 18. He told Clarkson, “I had a few issues in the first two years of having my license, from 16 to 18. I got four tickets, and the funny thing about it is, is that it was four different officers who told me they all gave my dad his first ticket, so I don’t know how that is possible.”

Dale Jr.’s father Dale Earnhardt was one of the biggest names in stock car racing since its advent in the 20th century. While it is natural for anyone to be known as having interacted with the legend, Dale Jr. can’t quite put a finger on how four different officers could have given him his first ticket. However, he did have a more important lesson to take away from the tickets he got

“I learned my lesson,” he affirmed. “I haven’t had any problems since then.” Dale Jr. is one of the executive producers of Full Speed. The docuseries has been very well received by drivers and fans since its premiere last month.

The instantaneous impact that Full Speed has been having on NASCAR
During the last race weekend, several drivers voiced their support for the Netflix docuseries and said that it was helping the sport generate new fans. One of the series main characters, Denny Hamlin said, “I thought it was a very good introduction for new fans. Because they also were kind of teaching you some 101 stuff, like, here’s how this works.”

Xfinity Series racer and Live Fast Motorsports co-owner B.J. McLeod compared it to the Hollywood hit Days of Thunder and mentioned that it had the best potential since the movie to attract new fans. He said, “It’s something that people should see, and I think that it was an unbelievable opportunity for NASCAR to have that on Netflix.”

The docuseries chronicled the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series playoff run and featured others including Ryan Blaney, Denny Hamlin, William Byron, Ross Chastain, and Dale Jr., himself.
