F1 qualifying LIVE: Hamilton summoned to stewards as Verstappen storm circles in Singapore

Red Bull remain adamant that no wrongdoing has taken place in spite of the allegations that have been directed against them over the course of this weekend.

The Austrian team have been accused of breaching last year’s budget cap by Mercedes and Ferrari, with some insiders reportedly believing that they exceeded the limit by around £10m.

The regulations state that a ‘financial penalty and/or any minor sporting penalties’ may be awarded if a team is found to have exceeded the budget cap by up to five per cent of its value, while stronger punishments may be dished out in the event of breaches greater than five per cent including race bans, points deductions and championship exclusions.
