A second Formula 1 driver faces a post-race investigation for fuel use during the United States Grand Prix.Kevin Magnussen exceeded the maximum allocation of 105kg of fuel from the start to the end of the race.
“Car 20, driver Kevin Magnussen, consumed more than 105kg of fuel, from the time at which the signal to start the race was given to the time the car had crossed the line after the end-of-race
signal had been given,” noted Bauer.
He referred the matter to the stewards for investigation, who summoned Haas to answer questions on the alleged breach. The investigation puts Magnussen’s ninth-place finish at risk.
