Racing Point has been found illegal by the FIA: 15 points deducted!

Renault was right to protest against Racing Point. From the Styrian Grand Prix onwards, the French team has already protested against the cars of Racing Point and today the FIA has decided that Renault is right. The car of Racing Point is illegal. It concerns the brakes of the RP20, which are a copy of Mercedes.

Penalty for Racing Point

With this, the FIA makes a clear statement about copying Formula 1 cars. Renault's protest, which focused on the brakes of Racing Point, has lasted and has resulted in several penalties for Racing Point. At the moment it is not yet clear what further consequences this will have for the team.

In any case, fifteen points have been deducted from Racing Point. This is the 7.5 points per car, which were used during the Styrian Grand Prix. In addition, the team will also be fined twice 200,000 euros for using the car found to be illegal for that race.

For the races in Hungary and Great Britain for which a protest was also made, Racing Point only received a reprimand.
