W e will only be sent after the GP Mexico know how the World Championship will really end in the field of pursuers. The FIA has set the appeal hearing in the HaasF1 case for November 1st. The US racing team appealed against Romain Grosjean's exclusion from the Italian GP.
Grosjean and the team lost 6th place and thus eight championship points. They can be decisive in the battle for fourth place in the constructors' championship. All other drivers moved up one position. The beneficiaries were Force India, Williams and the Renault team that filed the protest. HaasF1 sees a 50/50 chance of winning the calling. Even if statistically, most of the proceedings before the FIA Court of Appeal came to nothing.His interpretation of the rule in Directive TD /033-18 with the request to change the floor slab accordingly until the GP Italy. Sauber complied with the request, but HaasF1 did not.
Even before the race in Monza, the US racing team received a warning that the old underbody would not be resistant to protest. HaasF1 could still have brought the edges to the appropriate curves on site.
Renault had long since discovered the rule violation, but waited until after the race to protest in order to maximally harm the World Cup opponent. That didn't exactly cause a storm of enthusiasm in FIA circles. For around 20 years there has been a gentlemen's agreement in Formula 1, which says protesting against rule violations as early as possible in order to give the opponent the opportunity to react.
