Red Bull boss thinks FIA should give $7m fine to a good cause
Nov.1 - Christian Horner says he hopes the FIA does "something good" with Red Bull's $7 million fine over the budget cap saga.
"It's an enormous amount of money, payable within a 30 day period," said the team boss. "Obviously it's up to the FIA what they do with it, but we hope it goes to a good cause."
One such good cause, according to Horner, might be junior racing categories that clearly need a cash injection - like the all-female W Series.
That championship, which had been running as a support category at some grands prix this year, had to end two races early after running out of money.
"We are now seeing championships that are struggling financially, so hopefully they can do something good with it," said Horner.

Yes, what a good idea. How about a course on good sportsmanship.
I agree with Christian's concept. The FIA and Liberty hardly need more cash injections to roll in!
However, I don't agree with the proposal for the one-off payment going into a gender based series. It should go into a non-specific gender based series that may benefit competitors regardless of their gender.
It begs the question ~ will this be am ongoing issue that will result in many millions of dollars in fines each year, or will the teams now comply with the budget restrictions? If the latter prevails, this cannot be expected to be a windfall every year!
Ukraine 🇺🇦 fight for freedom from oppression would be a good thing to do
They could use the help
That's a brilliant suggestion I would definitely go along with that, they need it more than the fia.
