Today we had been expecting to hear from the FIA about any potential offences in regards to the 2021 Formula 1 cost cap – however, that has now been delayed until next week.
It perhaps comes as no surprise after how long it’s been taking the FIA to make decisions recently and sure enough we’ll have to wait a little longer to hear if there’s been any wrongdoing.
A statement confirmed no news will come out ahead of the weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix.
“The FIA informs that the conclusion of the analysis of the 2021 financial submissions of the Formula 1 teams and the subsequent release of Certificates of Compliance to the Financial Regulations will not take place on Wednesday, 5th October. The analysis of financial submissions is a long and complex process that is ongoing and will be concluded to enable the release of the Certificates on Monday, 10th October.”
The FIA also made reference to the constant rumours that two teams (Red Bull and Aston Martin) had breached the cost cap.
“As previously communicated, there has been significant and unsubstantiated speculation and conjecture in relation to this matter, and the FIA reiterates that until it is finalised, no further information will be provided.”
Hey, at least if gives F1 Twitter something to go on about for the next few days.
