    Looks like budget over expenditure by RBR was a mere $150k instead of the initial reports of $12mil. So...nothing to see here.

    Weelly? I thought the official stance was the FIA couldn't complete the revision and has postponed its public statement until the 10th.
    acket.

    $1 over the cap should still be punished! Unless there are rules in place that allows for some wiggle room? +/- and few hundred thousand dollars?

    Anyway, budget cap rule is really stupid for sure. Toyota went all out and still couldn't win. If you further limit Toyota's spending, they'd end up worse off!

    F1 is likely choking itself to death with these stupid team budget and driver point system rules.

    Something I read in a likely unreliable rag…but sometimes it’s true

    Apparently they are being fined many thousands of dollars.

    The FIA: You spent too much money!

    Also the FIA: Give us more money!

    FIA really needs to stop having these kind of rules that penalize drivers/teams after the fact.

    If you cannot make the proper call during the race, maybe it's not a good rule?

    The other issue with budget cap is that if you crash your car more often, then your team will be fucked financially for the year? If we don't count repair bills of accidental crashes as part of the budget, then rich teams could deliberately crash their cars so that they can upgrade their car parts?

    Anyway, F-1/FIA if slowly killing the spirit of top level racing.

    Heard it since the 80s, FIA was not even in place nor Ecclestone.

    Otherwise some halfway decent battles…but mostly forgettable race.
    Also, forgot but totally agree; both on Leclerc and the race.

    Really? FIA didn't exist back then? I don't even remember when FIA started then... wasn't paying much attention at all.

    Anyway, whatever they were complaining about, can't be as bad as now, right?

    Alpine: Ocon - Gasly confirmed,
    Alpha T: Tsunoda - De Vries confirmed,
    Macca: Norris - Piastri confirmed,
    Alfa: Bottas - Zhou confirmed,
    Haas: Did they confirm K-mag?
    Williams: Albon confirmed.
