F1: very harsh Valtteri Bottas, former Mercedes, on Red Bull.

Red Bull’s violation of the budget cap must be punished severely by the Fia: this is what Alfa Romeo driver Valtteri Bottas claims. The former Mercedes driver is among the most uncompromising at a press conference in Austin: “I personally hope that a severe and harsh sanction will come, because this should not happen: the rules are the rules.”

“There are many rules in F1 and there should be no difference in terms of penalties. So we hope that a strong penalty will come, which will really hurt them,” the Finn stressed. “I was in the fight for the constructors’ title last year. We still won it, but we lost the drivers’ title by a few points, and a few million can make a big difference.”
