Highlights

‣ Red Bull and AlphaTauri likely to have a stronger collaboration with AlphaTauri moving to Milton Keynes
‣ The maximum fine for FIA penalties in Formula 1 has been increased to €1 million
‣ Rumours of a potential switch between Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez at Red Bull have been debunked


Formula 1 thrives on the buzz of rumors and speculations, and even in the absence of a World Championship title battle, it keeps fans engaged. As we gear up for the Brazilian Grand Prix, let’s take a look at some of the most intriguing storylines that have emerged over the last 24 hours.

One of the major talking points revolves around Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri. Renowned F1 journalist Joe Saward reveals that their close relationship might face changes in the future. It is reported that AlphaTauri will be relocating to Milton Keynes, strengthening their bond with Red Bull. However, the 2030 Concorde Agreement might bring an end to such collaborations, as there are talks of a ban on these constructions. These developments could reshape the dynamics of the teams in the coming years.

In another development, the FIA has decided to significantly increase the maximum fine imposed on teams. Earlier capped at €250,000, the new limit will be a staggering €1 million. This decision comes after a realization that the previous fine amounts were inadequate considering the current financial landscape of Formula 1. Ben Sulayem, a representative from the FIA, acknowledges the need for updating the regulations to keep up with the modern era of the sport.

Lastly, there has been some buzz surrounding a potential driver shuffle involving Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez. A rumor started circulating when All Fabrega posted a mysterious message, hinting at a “magic switch” between Alonso and Perez. Speculations suggested that Alonso would leave Aston Martin to partner with Max Verstappen at Red Bull, with Perez returning to his former team. However, Fabrega later clarified his message, debunking the rumor and putting an end to the excitement of a Verstappen-Alonso dream team.

These recent developments highlight the ever-present drama and intrigue in the world of Formula 1. As fans wait for the upcoming press event ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix, they can’t help but speculate on the future of their favorite teams and drivers. Stay tuned for more updates and surprises in the world of Formula 1.
