Haas requests review of United States Grand Prix

by | Nov 4, 2023 | Haas F1 Team | 0 comments

Haas has officially lodged a request for the FIA to re-evaluate the results from the United States Grand Prix that occurred two weeks prior.

The team believes that certain track limit violations were overlooked by the stewards during the event. To proceed with this request, the race stewards must agree on a suitable time to reconvene. A preliminary hearing will be set to ascertain whether Haas has presented new, significant evidence that justifies a review.

The regulations stipulate that teams must file any petition for a review within 14 days following a race. Haas’s submission comes just shy of this deadline, at 13 days after the United States Grand Prix.

This move mirrors a similar scenario earlier in the season when Aston Martin successfully instigated a reassessment of the Austrian Grand Prix results, having shown that not all track limit breaches were accounted for by the stewards.

Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg crossed the finish line in 11th place at the circuit in Austin, narrowly missing out on a point by less than two seconds to Logan Sargeant and trailing Alexander Albon by under four seconds for ninth place.

Albon received a five-second penalty during the race for exceeding track limits. Although the stewards deliberated on the possibility of additional violations, they concluded there was insufficient evidence to make a definitive call.

Throughout the grand prix, drivers had a cumulative total of 35 lap times nullified for surpassing the track boundaries at eight different turns. Post-race, several drivers, including Lando Norris who finished second, indicated that the FIA’s monitoring of track limits was inconsistent and possibly incomplete. Norris even acknowledged intentionally going wide at turn six, suspecting that the FIA wouldn’t be able to detect if drivers maintained the track limit boundaries there.

Haas had previously contested the outcome of the same race last year, pointing out a missed steward action regarding a loose wing mirror on Fernando Alonso’s Alpine. Initially, their protest was recognized, but later it was reversed when Alpine demonstrated that Haas had not met the protest submission deadline.
