ABITEBOUL : “RACING POINT MUST LOSE ALL POINTS THIS SEASON “

RENAULT RACING POINT MUST LOSE ALL POINTS THIS SEASON BECAUSE OF THE BRAKES

Abiteboul does not understand that the FIA ​​does pay a penalty for the brake ducts from Racing Point during the Steiermark Grand Prix, but only reprimands for subsequent races.

The discussion about the legality of Racing Point already started in February and still seems to have no end. Following an initial ruling by the FIA, several teams have appealed against the penalty that has been given. In addition to Racing Point, Ferrari and Renault are also protesting. Renault does not agree at all with the penalty for the competitor.

“We were actually expecting a constant punishment equivalent to similar punishments in the past,” explains Cyril Abiteboul to Autosport. “The most recent punishment we’ve received in Suzuka. That was a violation of the sporting regulations and therefore we were disqualified from the event and lost all points”. 

Racing Point, however, received a lighter penalty than disqualification and got away with a fine and a small decrease in points. “There was no light penalty for Renault, so we don’t know why Racing Point does.”

Abiteboul clearly disagrees with the penalty given to Racing Point and therefore indicates what else the penalty should comply with. “Instead of fifteen points it should be all the points the team received with the illegal parts. So those are all the points this season”. The light penalty is not the only reason that the team will appeal. “We also want more clarity about the situation. For the fans, however, it is weird that a car is illegal, but is allowed to keep on driving. So there has to be clarity about it”, Abiteboul concluded.
