Renault is facing a protest from rival team Racing Point over the legality of the braking system it used in the Japanese Grand Prix.
Article 11.1.4 of the technical regulations states “any change to, or modulation of, the brake system, other than any movement of the minimal flexible parts described in Article 11.4 to 11.6 [front and rear air ducts], whilst the car is on the track must be made by the driver’s direct physical input or by the system referred to in Article 11.9 [the rear brake control system], and may not be pre-set.”
Both Renault drivers scored points in the Japanese Grand Prix. Daniel Ricciardo finished sixth (promoted one place following Charles Leclerc’s penalties) and Nico Hulkenberg was 10th.
