Substantial evidence delays protest decision

NEWS STORY
23/11/2018

Yas Marina stewards admit that the sheer amount of evidence has delayed a ruling following Haas' protest of Force India's cars.

Though it isn't officially confirmed it is understood that Haas is protesting the fact that Racing Point Force India is running cars and components built by Force India, Haas understood to be insisting that the intellectual property doesn't belong to the new team - somewhat ironic when the Haas cars are essentially the work of Dallara and others.

Having met with representatives of both teams this morning, including their lawyers, the Yas Marina stewards subsequently revealed that "a substantial amount of written evidence was submitted and each party made extensive verbal representation".

The stewards are now deliberating the matter though they admit that it is anticipated that a decision will not be handed down any earlier that just prior to Free Practice 3.

"Hass have a car chassis built by Dallara, Racing Point Force India car chassis has been built by Force India. Difficult to work out any difference in their modus operandi .Bruce Harre. "

"Its a bit of a mute point me thinks. Hass bought cars built and manufactured or them by Dallara. I dont see an issue there as there are ( i think)no rules that says you cannot do that. Racing point bought force india and all equipment including the cars etc. So same thing. Unless there was IP involved whih they did not purchase"
