Grosjean's Haas disqualified from Italian Grand Prix

  • As the title says.  Renault queried and the FIA upheld.  The floor on Grosjean's Haas has been ruled as illegal and so he was disqualified from the race.  Haas have the right to appeal.

  • I heard from Ted Kravitz at about 5.30pm on Sky F1 that Renault had protested the legality of something on the Haas car but there was no info at that time.

    Ted said that Renault had been discussing something on the Haas car for a couple of weeks with the FIA and this was their last chance to protest the car or shut up. Seems they were right to protest, but it's slightly puzzling how the Haas cars could get through scrutineering at a few races with the floors not complying.  :confused:

  • The applicable Technical Directive only came into force this race. It is possible Renault could have heard the Haas team was considering breaching the regulation somehow, but from what I gather, they only managed to get the incriminating evidence on the starting grid, hence why it took until the post-race protest window for the matter to be investigated (you can't really do a technical inspection of a car floor that's on the track and running at race speeds).

    While it might have been wise for all the floors to be proactively checked on the Thursday, they weren't. Perhaps there was disbelief that Haas would actually go through with their proposal to deliberately not have the correct floor on the cars (wouldn't be the first time the FIA has failed to take someone seriously when it should have done).
