Ferrari Carlos Sainz: Ferrari’s request for driver’s penalty review to be heard

Only if that is deemed the case will the incident be reviewed by officials. Ferrari team principal Frederic Vasseur said last week he was concerned that two other incidents at the same restart – the penultimate one in a race defined by incidents and stoppages – did not lead to penalties. Vasseur and Sainz were both frustrated that stewards decided on the penalty almost instantaneously without hearing from the drivers involved. The Aston Martin driver was reinstated in third place for the last restart because he was able to rejoin the race and officials deemed that not enough distance had been covered after that restart to designate a different order. He pointed out that the Gasly-Ocon incident was reviewed by stewards after the race including taking statements from both drivers.
