The Imola circuit has had to pay a 500 EUR fine after Max Verstappen set off noise pollution detectors nearby driving a screaming 2013 Red Bull RB9 for promotional purposes.
The filming happened October 12, 2022 using a car formerly driven by Sebastian Vettel.
Elena Penazzi, Councillor for the Autodrome, Tourism and Citizen Services of Imola said of the fine, as per Corriere dello Sport: ‘The Red Bull event was the only occasion on which the Autodrome has made noise in the past year, always remaining within the limit, despite the many activities carried out.
“On 12 October, Red Bull showed up with an older car than the current one and the limits were exceeded. It was a matter of a few laps.”
