Vienna, Austria.- In Formula 1 there is an amount of money calculated for the development of the participating cars, a controversy that has been generated between the team Ferrari and Racingwho the latter is pointed out for having crossed the budgeted limit to see an improvement in his car.

Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen have put pressure on Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz in the last races of the 2022 season, it being the Dutchman who won the motorsport title at the Emilia-Romagna and Miami GPs continuously after a striking dispute with the Monegasque (Leclerc).

In the Ferrari team they believe that the group of Austria invested much more than what was agreed so that its vehicles have a better power than the same F1-75. Mattia Binotto, boss of the Italian teamnoted after the Miami Grand Prix: “There is a budget limit, so at some point Red Bull Racing will stop developing, otherwise I don’t understand how they can do it.”

After the arguments of the head of Ferrari, the Austrians came out to ‘deny’ that the construction of the RB18 has been increased to obtain a better capacity. Helmut Marko, team sports adviserclarified that the cost of the team does not exceed the limits of the plan that determined the Formula 1.

“We plan our upgrades in such a way that we always lose weight with each one, because unfortunately we haven’t reached the minimum weight yet, it won’t be reached with the next upgrade either,” he said when asked if RB overpaid.

“I don’t think we are in a different position than the Ferrari team,” added Helmut Marko, who stated that the biggest concern that Red Bull Racing would have with the budget issue would be the increase in the cost of transportation.
