Team Principal Christian Horner says Max Verstappen’s crash with Lewis Hamilton at the British Grand Prix cost Red Bull at least 1.3 million pounds.
The figure is more than one percent of the team’s total budget this season, following the introduction of Formula 1’s budget cap at 145 million dollars this year.
Horner submitted that the loss “has massive ramifications” for this season.
The cost could impact on Red Bull’s ability to bring performance upgrades to their car, among other expenses.
The figure is a best early estimate for repairs the car, and could yet go up as Red Bull are still looking into whether the monocoque can be repaired or will have to be replaced with a new one.
Engine partner Honda has sent the power unit back to its base in Sakura, Japan to investigate the extent of the damage.
