Haas request right of review for United States GP

The Haas Formula 1 team have filed a ‘right of review’ request related to last month’s U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, a team representative said on Saturday.

No reason was given but media reports indicated it concerned track limit infringements at Turn Six of the Circuit of the Americas.

Haas’s Nico Hulkenberg was classified 11th in the October 22 race in Texas, while Danish teammate Kevin Magnussen ended up 14th.

The FIA’s sporting code allows a right of review when “a significant and relevant new element is discovered which was unavailable to the parties seeking the review at the time of the decision concerned”.

The governing body will now reconvene the United States Grand Prix stewards for them to decide whether to grant Haas the review.

Stewards at the United States race analyzed alleged Turn Six track limit infringements by Williams driver Alexander Albon but decided not to give him a penalty because of insufficient video evidence.

Mercedes’s Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc were disqualified from second and sixth respectively in Austin after their cars failed technical checks, as the under-floor planks on their respective cars were found to be excessively worn out in post-race FIA scrutineering.

The disqualifications meant Albon and teammate Logan Sargeant bagged unexpected points with ninth and 10th places respectively.
