Sergio Perez has defended the Red Bull team amid their breach of the cost cap regulations.
Red Bull are accused by the FIA of a 'minor' overspend for the 2021 season, with sources telling RacingNews365.com that the figure is around $1.8 million.
The Milton Keynes team have always refuted the FIA's stance, and believe that they were within the $145m limit.
In light of the news, Max Verstappen backed the squad and suggested that criticisms from other teams and drivers have been "hypocritical", a view that Perez has also hinted at.
Perez: It's part of the sport
"We believe that we are in line, and we believe that everything will come up in the right situation," Perez told media, including RacingNews365.com, ahead of the United States Grand Prix.
"Obviously, I will leave it down to my team to solve that together with the FIA, but at the end of the day, there's always teams that want to take performance out of you, especially when you are winning.
"So it's part of the sport and this has been forever."
