Helmut Marko has contributed to the row over Red Bull Racing's apparent over-spend in 2010, claiming that at least three others spent more.

Marko seems to have forgotten that, according to the reports, it was his team principal, Christian Horner who asked FOTA for an amnesty in respect of 2010.

Less than half of 300M is 190M? sounds to me like Marko can't read the balance sheet!! I realize the article said in excess of 300M, but in order for 190M to be less than half of what they spent, the total people are talking about would be closer to 400M than 300M, which would have had every report claiming Red Bull spent close to 400M instead of in excess of 300M.

Mike: "it was Christian Horner who asked FOTA for an amnesty"

No, he didn't ask for an amnesty. You ask for an amnesty when you know you've done something wrong and are offering to come clean about it. Red Bull asked for an exception to be made, which suggests there is some anomaly in the accounting which wasn't anticipated when the rules were drawn up.

wow, what a lot of certified accountants posting here. how did you all see the red bull accounts? i think that fia and rbr spokespeople are more able to assess the info, than any outside person. fia have certainly not acused rbr of overspending.

Your right about the FIA Richard.

What about Max who started all this.

The point is Helmut needs to stay mute on certain issues or RBR will onceagain be a political melting pot.

I just want to see Motor Racing without the innuendos
