Gutted that HULK couldn't even race a lap today.

 

Gutted that Bottas lost 18 points due to the late puncture, while Hamilton got to keep those 25 points. :coffee2: Lewis is now 30 points ahead in the championship, instead of leading by "only" 12 points.

 

Kinda glad to see LeClerc snag another unexpected podium.

Interesting to note that Spielberg 1, Spa, Monza and Sochi all managed to keep their original dates even with the pandemic screwing up all the schedules.

Racing Point have been deducted 15 world championship points and fined €400,000 after FIA stewards upheld Renault’s protest about the legality of the design of the team’s RP20 car.

 

Racing Point raised eyebrows at Barcelona testing when they unveiled a car that looked remarkably similar to last year’s championship-winning Mercedes. The team – who take an engine as well as several parts, including the suspension, from Mercedes as per the rules –admitted taking inspiration from the car, but consistently insisted what they had done is within the rules.

 

After the Styrian, Hungarian and British Grands Prix, Renault lodged a protest with the stewards, alleging that Racing Point’s brake ducts had been directly copied from the 2019 Mercedes.

 

And on Friday in Silverstone, the stewards delivered their verdict, upholding Renault’s protest.

 

Racing Point were fined €200,000 for fielding Sergio Perez’s car in Styria and the same amount for fielding Lance Stroll’s. They were also deducted 7.5 world championship points per car - though Perez and Stroll keep their drivers' championship points. Protests for the Hungarian and British Grands Prix were also upheld, with Racing Point reprimanded for using their car in both events.
