Vettel urges FIA to be more open

One of the most discussed topics in the paddock is the financial regulation violations committed by Red Bull Racing, and the possible sanctions that the team will impose for this.

In particular, there are suggestions that these should not only be financial sanctions, but also measures of a sporting nature. This is stated in a letter from Zach Brown to FIA President Mohammed bin Sulayem: “Monetary sanctions alone are not sufficient punishment for overspending or serious procedural violations. In such cases, it is also necessary to apply sports sanctions, the amount of which must be determined by the FIA.

In theory, one of the toughest measures could be a revision of last year’s championship results. Although the chance of such a scenario is small, Sebastian Vettel was asked about such a possibility.

“On this occasion, I think the FIA ​​should clarify the situation as soon as possible because it is clear that this would be unreasonable,” RacingNews365 quoted the four-time world champion as saying. “I don’t think anyone doubts that Max Verstappen became world champion last year.”

The FIA ​​has not yet released information on the nature of the offenses committed by Red Bull, and this kind of information vacuum is creating the basis for all sorts of rumours, so Vettel called on the federation to be more open.

“The FIA ​​can do what they want because they have police functions,” he said. “But I believe we live in a time where openness is becoming more and more normal, and I think it should be the same for sports.

It is best to be transparent so that everyone can understand exactly what happened. Otherwise, all kinds of rumors and speculation are unavoidable, and I think all this should have stayed in the past.
