THE US Grand Prix results were confirmed after Formula One stewards yesterday rejected an attempt by the Haas team to have them reviewed weeks after the event.
Stewards ruled, in a lengthy statement, that Haas had presented no significant and relevant new element that was unavailable to them at the time of the October 22 race in Austin, Texas.
The also stated, however, that their inability to properly enforce track limits violations for all competitors at turn six of the Circuit of the Americas was “completely unsatisfactory” and a solution needed to be found before the start of next season.
“Whether the problem is properly addressed by better technology solutions, track modifications, a combination thereof, or a different regulation and enforcement standard, the stewards leave to those better positioned to make such assessments,” they added.
The decision was reached after a virtual hearing that started on Wednesday and was deferred to yesterday.
Haas, last in the championship, sought the review during last weekend’s Sao Paulo Grand Prix because they believed some rivals exceeded track limits without sanction.
