How much Red Bull will spend for the Silverstone crash

The introduction of the spending limit for F1 teams from this season has meant that every sum of money that comes out of a team’s bank account has to be thought through, especially for top teams.

In this regard, a large accident means an outlay of money that can jeopardize the development plans of a team, something that Mercedes has already experienced firsthand with the strong blow it suffered. Valtteri Bottas and smashed his W12 after a tap with George Russell on the visit to Imola last April.

Now it’s Red Bull’s turn after the RB16B de Verstappen was destroyed after the Dutchman’s strong blow against the wall of tires at the Copse corner due to the touch with Hamilton.

In dialogue with the television channel RTL of Germany, Marko ruled out that the chassis used by Verstappen in Great Britain could return to the track.

“Not in this car anymore, unfortunately, because it is totally ruined. But he will be very motivated and will return to the car in Hungary,” said the Austrian asked if Verstappen will be in the next F1 race, ruling out any serious physical problems for his driver. star and revealing at the same time the situation of the car.

Consulted later for the money to be invested Red Bull As a result of the crash, Marko indicated that it is close to one million euros, while waiting to know what will happen to the Honda power unit, which was sent to Japan for analysis.

“As it is, it is about three-quarters of a million euros. The situation of the engine has not yet been completely clarified, whether it is good or not. So, especially in times of spending caps, that is already a significant amount, which of course also hurts us, “said Marko.

But despite Marko’s opening words, this Friday Christian Horner, through a column posted on the Red Bull website, said the figure is much higher.

“You have to give credit to the safety standards of these cars, the Halo and the fender systems, because the impact was such that it really broke Max’s seat,” Horner said.

“The car could have overturned quite easily, which was an initial concern expressed by the medical team that came first, but thankfully they didn’t.”

“The other important factor is the cost of the accident. This accident has cost us approximately $ 1.8 million, and such an accident has huge ramifications in a time of budget constraints.”

It remains to be seen in the coming weeks how much the money spent by the Copse accident will finally affect Red Bull’s plans for the development of its car, which will undoubtedly remain as one of the images of the 2021 season.
