The FIA has summoned three teams in response to a request by Haas for the results of the United States Grand Prix to be reviewed.
As is standard practice, the first part of the hearing will consider whether there is grounds for a review of the results. The stewards of the United States Grand Prix – Felix Holter, Andrew Mallalieu,
Derek Warwick and Dennis Dean – will decide whether Haas has provided a “significant and relevant new element which was unavailable to the party seeking the review at the time of the decision concerned”.
If the stewards decide there is grounds for a review to go ahead, they will proceed with the second part of the hearing “at a time to be advised”.
Haas have requested a review of two documents: the final classification of the race and a decision to take no further action against Alexander Albon for multiple track limits breaches. The Williams driver was given a five-second penalty for exceeding track limits on four occasions.
Albon committed a total of six track limits offences during the race. Had further breaches been overlooked by the stewards he could have received a further penalty.
Document 59, which Haas requested a review of, states “whilst there might be some indication for possible track limit infringements in turn six, the evidence at hand is not sufficient to accurately and consistently conclude that any breaches occurred and therefore take no further action.”
Albon was classified ninth after his penalty, less than five seconds ahead of Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg.
Of the other teams summoned, Red Bull’s drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez finished first and fourth, while Aston Martin’s sole finisher was Lance Stroll in seventh place.
