Misunderstood and ill-informed: Racing Point responds to the Renault Protest

formula-1 team Racing Point is in the face of the vortex to its "pink Mercedes", self-aware, and has rejected the conjectures of the competitors. The Protest against the Boliden RP20 is based on a false understanding, and is informed "bad", informed the Team on Monday after the Grand Prix of Styria.

The cars from a Racing Point are the subject of an investigation by the international automobile Association FIA, after Renault filed an official Protest. Since the RP20 Mercedes last season has distinct Similarities to the champion of the world-should be checked whether the rules have been breached. The stewards have authorised the Protest officially, the corresponding parts have been seized for analysis and sealed.

Racing Point was "extremely disappointed that our results will be challenged in Spielberg". Under the findings with respect to misconduct, the Team rejected. It worked "before the Start of the season, with the FIA and all questions about the origin of the design of the RP20 to the satisfaction devoted". We are confident that the Protest will ultimately be rejected.

Renault is relying in the case of the examination of the "legality" of the pink cars on parts of the Sporting regulations, which specify the following: Certain components of the cars ("listed parts") must have been designed by the respective Team themselves, but also the dissemination of information on these components is not allowed.

With his concerns in view of the Similarity between the current RP20 with the Mercedes W10 by 2019, Renault is not alone in the field. Racing Point, the starts in the coming year as Aston Martin, is regarded as a contender for fourth place in the constructors ' championship. Ferrari continues to weaken significantly, it seems even third place behind Mercedes and Red Bull possible.
