LEWIS HAMILTON has reiterated his calls for the FIA to be transparent in punishing Red Bull after Formula 1’s cost cap was exceeded.
Red Bull are at odds with the FIA over their breach of rules on spending above the £114m limit last year when Max Verstappen helped Hamilton win the title.
But the Mercedes man says FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem cannot let go of Red Bull with a “slap on the wrists”.
He said: “I believe Mohammed and his team will make the right decisions.
“I have to believe that. I want to give you the benefit of the doubt.
“I’m generally happy. I want to win another championship.
“I have my own opinion of what we did as a team and how we did it last year and I’m really proud of it and believe in what we’ve learned.
“It doesn’t really change much. I think the sport has to do something about it in the future.
“Otherwise, if they’re lax with those rules, all the teams would just go over there and spend millions more and then just get a slap on the wrist.
“It would not be good for the sport.

“We will continue to encounter things and hurdles.
“Integrity is how we navigate through these while maintaining core values while being transparent and true to the values of what the sport and regulations are meant to oversee.”
