F1 is one of the most technologically advanced sports in the world and with such innovation the cost of even the smallest incident can incur eye-watering repair costs.

The financial side of F1 has been thrust into the spotlight with the introduction of the cost cap to reduce spending, leading to teams being forced to budget accordingly in case of on-track incidents and the subsequent manufacturing of new parts.

At the end of a season riddled with high drama and on-track skirmishes, here is a rundown of just how much each driver cost their respective teams through car damage in 2021, as per Sky Sports Germany, with the top three quite surprising.
