The salary cap and inflation in the world are two issues that are beginning to concern Formula 1 Despite the fact that the first stage of the championship is barely lived in this 2022, this was stated by the head of Red Bull, Christian Horner.

“I think we need the FIA ​​to address the issue of inflation because I think basically about seven of the teams should miss the last four races to comply with the limit this year, due to the consensus that there has been in the paddock” said Horner a few days ago ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix.

For the Red Bull boss, this won’t be a blow to just a few squires: “It’s not just the big teams, but the midfield teams that are struggling with the inflation rate that we are seeing and that could even worsen in the second half of the year”.

“I think the FIA ​​has a duty of care in a situation like this. I know they’re taking it very seriously because, as I say, you’d almost be at the point where I think for certain teams, based on the numbers that were presented, they’ll have to lose a few grands to get close to the numbers,” Horner reiterated.
