Racing Point to stewards again: Reprimanded because of brake ducts

Racing Point has been reprimanded for reusing the brake ducts that were declared illegal by the FIA earlier this weekend. This warning is unlikely to have major consequences.

The stewards are of the opinion that the brake ducts may be used from the technical regulations, but that they are not designed according to the grounds of the sporting regulations. A very strange situation that leads to Racing Point receiving a reprimand every time they continue to drive these brake ducts.

However, Lawrence Stroll's team reportedly has little to fear from these reprimands. This will not cause them to be disqualified during Grands Prix, for example.

Renault, McLaren, Ferrari, Williams still seem to appeal the 400,000 euro penalty and 15 World Championship points deduction. If they are proved right on appeal, Racing Point may be taken out of the final results of the races with which they drove the brake ducts in question.
