After Christian Horner, Helmut Marko has now responded to reports that Red Bull Racing would have exceeded its budget cap in 2021. The Austrian is not worried at all but finds it surprising that this information has been made public.

"This is an ongoing procedure. We are only getting the details and cannot say anything about it at the moment. We are not worried that anything serious could happen," Marko tells ORF.
