Further appeals over Racing Point design would be “a waste of time” – Szafnauer | RaceFans Round-up

In the round-up: Racing Point CEO Otmar Szafnauer says he expects Renault to accept the decision of the stewards on the legality of its car when it is given, and not pursue further appeals.

What they say

Szafnauer expects the stewards to rule in favour of his team when they issue their decision, which could happen before this weekend’s race.

I would hope they wouldn’t try over and over again.

We know the rules, we know the sporting regulations, we know the technical regulations very well. And we’re 100 percent compliant.

We didn’t breach anything. So I think it would be futile and just a waste of time to go over the same ground over and over.

The FIA came in March and had a good understanding of how we developed this car, what we did to get to where we got to. And they’re 100 percent happy that we did it legally and within the regulations. It’s just the stewards didn’t come. So now we’ve got to explain what we explained to the FIA, technical delegates, the stewards.
