There are some issues that Red Bull believes have been mismeasured, which are the subject of their protests to FIA President Mohamed Ben Sulayem. And it is understood that Red Bull will make that clear at the United States Grand Prix this weekend.
For example, there is confusion about whether CTO Adrian Newey belongs to the team’s top three winners, which must be defined by each team. Newey’s contract is reportedly different from that of permanent members of senior management such as team principal Horner and special adviser Helmut Marko.
Issues over staff absenteeism, employee food subsidy and unused car parts have also raised possibilities as reasons for Red Bull’s overspending in 2021.
However, this is yet to be determined and may not be made public until the FIA’s final decision is upheld.
