Binotto “will be surprised” if Red Bull bring lighter chassis

Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto admitted that he “will be very surprised” if Red Bull introduce a lightweight chassis later in the season.

Red Bull are reportedly planning to introduce a new chassis this season to address the issue of the excessive weight of the car. However, Binotto doubts that the Milton Keynes-based outfit will do it because of the budget cap.

“We’ve now got the technical, sporting, and as well the financial regulations which can make a difference between teams in the way they are interpreting and executing it,” he commented.

“We know that we need to have a very strong FIA to have it properly focusing, otherwise the regulations themselves will not be fair and equitable.

“Now I cannot judge on the Red Bull for the lightweight [chassis] because as you said, maybe not. As Ferrari, we will never be capable of introducing a lightweight chassis or a different strategy through a season, simply for budget cap.

“I will be very surprised if other teams would be capable of doing it.”
