F1’s governing body revealed after the Japanese GP that both Red Bull and Aston Martin were in breach of F1’s financial regulations for 2021, putting them at risk of sanctions.

Both Red Bull’s and Aston Martin’s respective penalties have been announced along with the FIA reports on each team’s cost cap breach.

• How it will impact Red Bull on track
• What this means for team who breach the cost cap in the future
