Steiner: Haas right of review case highlighted FIA "bad job" on track limits
According to Guenther Steiner, the team principal of Haas F1 Team, their failed bid for a review of track limits at Turn 6 during the US Grand Prix resulted in a win because the stewards acknowledged that the FIA was doing a “bad job” in enforcing the limits. Haas submitted a request for review after studying footage and finding multiple offenses by Sergio Perez, Lance Stroll, Alex Albon, and Logan Sargeant during the race. Despite the stewart’s refusal to grant the review, they urged the FIA to find a better solution for track limits. Steiner expressed no regrets about their attempt and emphasized the importance of fighting for what they believe in. He disagreed with the stewards’ assertion that Haas should have submitted a protest immediately after the race and not a review request. According to Steiner, it is the FIA’s responsibility to ensure the proper means for checking their regulations and not the teams’. He also stated that the team’s goal was to help develop Formula 1 rules for the benefit of the entire sport. While they didn’t achieve their immediate objective, Steiner considers it a win if it leads to improvements in the future.
