Horner estimated how much Red Bull's speed will be affected by the penalty
Christian Horner, told how a 10 percent reduction in wind tunnel time could affect the team
The head of Red Bull, Christian Horner, told how a 10 percent reduction in wind tunnel time could affect the team.
Christian Horner: "I've heard people say that the penalty is not too serious, but 10 percent of the work in the wind tunnel is a draconian measure. It can cost us from a quarter to half a second.
We have included too many tax payments in our report. Otherwise, the excess would be only -0.37 percent.
We thought that catering services are not included in the spending limit, so our staff always gets free food and drinks. Now everything is included in the limit, we are talking about the amount of 1.4 million pounds.
Why did we agree to the punishment? The rules are new, but there is still a lot of work ahead. Arbitration could guarantee that this process could continue for another year. So we just decided to close the book and turn the page”.
