The FIA has confirmed Haas’ Right of Review into the final results
of the United States Grand Prix last month. Haas is disputing the
classification over a number of alleged track limit breaches that
were not picked up by race stewards during the race at the Circuit
of the Americas. Nico Hulkenberg finished 13th on track but was
promoted by two positions after Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton and
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc were disqualified for excessive plank
wear. With the German subsequently narrowly missing out on points,
attention turned to footage that suggested at least Alex Albon and
Sergio Perez had transgressed at Turn 6. But at the time, following
an investigation, the stewards determined that there was
insufficient evidence to punish Williams driver Albon, thus the
revised results stood. Red Bull, Aston Martin summoned Haas lodged
its Right to Review within the mandated 14-day time period and has
been summoned to the stewards on Wednesday [November 8] for the
hearing. Red Bull, Aston Martin and Williams have also been
summoned – though teams are allowed to request attendance to the
hearing. The summons report read: “The Stewards have received a
petition for a Right of Review in accordance with Article 14 of the
FIA International Sporting Code, from MoneyGram Haas F1 Team on 03
November 2023 in respect of the decisions of the Stewards of the
2023 United States Grand Prix, Document 59, Alleged breaches of
Appendix L, Chapter IV, Article 2c) of the International Sporting
Code and Article 33.3 of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations
in relation to Car 23 and Document 66, Final Classification. “The
team representative is required to report to the Stewards on
Wednesday, November 8, 2023 at 15:00 hrs CET in relation to the
above. The hearing will be held virtually via video conference,
details of which will be provided by separate communication. “Any
other “concerned party” may seek the permission of the Stewards to
appear. It should be noted that this Hearing will be held in two
parts. “The first part will be to hear evidence as to whether there
is a “significant and relevant new element which was unavailable to
the party seeking the Review at the time of the Decision
concerned.” “Should the Stewards determine, in accordance with
Article 14.3 of the FIA International Sporting Code, that such an
element exists, a second part of the Hearing will be convened at a
time to be advised.”
