Red Bull Boss Christian Horner Fears F1 Title Fight Ending In Court Due To Cost Cap And Rising Inflation

Red Bull boss Christian Horner fears F1’s title fight could end up in court if the FIA does not increase the sport’s yearly cost cap, which he says has also put hundreds of jobs at risk amid rising global inflation.

All F1 teams have a cost cap of $140m (£119m) for 2022 but a dramatic rise in inflation has led to many teams – frontrunners Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes most publicly – claiming it will be impossible to abide by the rules.

Speaking to Sky Sports F1 at the Canadian GP, Horner reiterated his concerns and called on F1’s governing body to act now.

“The way you design your car is within your control,” said Horner. “That is something that you, together with your group of designers, you create. You’re in control of your own destiny.

“What we’re seeing in the world at the moment, we’re not in control of the inflationary costs that are affecting households around the world. In the UK, we’re seeing predicted inflation at 11 per cent.
