Red Bull boss warns F1 over ‘vanilla-type reg­u­la­tions’

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

SPIEL­BERG, AUS­TRIA » Red Bull team prin­ci­pal Chris­tian Horner fears For­mula One will “end up with com­pro­mises and vanilla-type reg­u­la­tions” if lead­ing of­fi­cials don’t fully align in defin­ing new rules for 2021.

In the build-up to the Aus­trian GP, Horner called on Fri­day for the FIA gov­ern­ing body and com­mer­cial pro­mot­ers Lib­erty Me­dia to give “real clar­ity go­ing for­ward as to what the sport is go­ing to be, what the reg­u­la­tions are go­ing to be that both par­ties ul­ti­mately have to buy into.”

Lib­erty took con­trol of F1 last year, end­ing Bernie Ec­cle­stone’s four-decade reign.

Mercedes and Fer­rari have ex­pressed con­cern, with the lat­ter team threat­en­ing to quit the sport be­cause it is un­happy with Lib­erty’s pro­posal to sim­plify en­gines and re­dis­tribute prize money among teams after the cur­rent con­tract ex­pires at the end of 2020.
