The aerodynamic testing penalty handed to Red Bull for it's 2021 budget cap breach has now expired.

The Milton Keynes-based outfit was found to be in breach of what was a $145 million cap for the 2021 season, the first year of the sport's financial regulations.

Red Bull was punished with a $7 million fine - not deducted from its budget cap - and a 10 per cent reduction in aerodynamic testing time [ATR].

This was on top of the sliding scale regulations that see top of the championship, Red Bull in this case, given the least amount of ATR, with five per cent intervals between teams to try and help close the pack up and ensure a level playing field as part of the sport's remit to invoke exciting racing action.

The penalty was imposed on October 26 last term and, as such, has now expired.

Red Bull can now return to using its full ATR allowance, which should come in handy when developing its challenger for next season as it aims to secure a fourth Drivers' title and third Constructors' title in a row.
