Christian Horner stated that Red Bull Racing are expecting developments in their dispute with Aston Martin regarding car design.

The dispute began at the Spanish GP, when Aston Martin brought a revised version of the AMR22 car. It had similarities with Red Bull’s challenger. The FIA conducted an investigation, but deemed Aston Martin’s car legal.

However, Red Bull were not convinced with the conclusion and assumed that an IP leak had taken place. The story was put on pause later on, but Horner said it could be discussed at the F1 Commission meeting this weekend.

“Obviously it’s an ongoing process. It really sits with the FIA at the moment so there’s nothing really further to add from our side,” the Red Bull team principal commented during the British GP.

“I’m sure, again, within the two-hour window that we have in Austria for the Formula 1 commission meeting next week, it’ll be added to the list of discussion topics.”

Horner also added that the technical directive regarding porpoising as well as the budget cap would be discussed during the meeting.

“I think the TD [the technical directive] has largely been addressed. What happened in Montreal wasn’t right, the process, that it was introduced on a Thursday afternoon and the manner without any consultation with a technical group.

“So I think that consultation has now happened through that technical working group, or the TAC as it’s now known, and I think the implementation with the timing for France has now followed that process.

“We need to come up with solutions, because we’re now at the half-year point.

“Regarding obviously the cost cap issue, it will be interesting to see what the FIA presents. They promised to come back to us with a proposal, so we’ll listen with interest to see what’s put on the table.”
