Max Verstappen claims that Red Bull Racing have a “strong belief” they did not violate the budget cap regulations.

The FIA revealed last week that Red Bull is one of the two teams that failed to comply with the cost cap rules in the 2021 F1 season. According to the organization, the Milton Keynes-based outfit had a procedural breach and committed minor overspending. However, Red Bull denied the breaches.

It is understood that the FIA offered Red Bull to sign an Accepted Breach Agreement that will resolve the issue.

“It’s something between the team and the FIA anyway, right? And from our side, we have a strong belief that we were in it,” Verstappen commented on the matter.

“So that’s why we are discussing about it, to show what we think is right. But, at the end of the day, it’s not up to me. I’m just focused on the performance on track.”

When asked whether he was bothered by the discussions, the Dutchman said: “It just depends what you read.

“For me, I think what we have achieved this year is incredible. And about the budget cap, yes, they’re talking about it now, but like I said before, we think that we are right, and we will of course always believe in our cause and we will show that to the FIA.

“Now it’s up to them of course to make a decision. Also that will go away again.”
