FIA report blames ‘human error’ for Abu Dhabi GP controversy but result stands

It also confirmed the result of the race, which Max Verstappen won to claim the title, stands and that the governing body considers the matter closed. The report is unlikely to satisfy the many people who are deeply unhappy about how the race was handled. In reference to Masi’s decision to allow only a certain number of cars to unlap themselves rather than all of them, the wording could well be interpreted as disingenuous. The report stated: “The process of identifying lapped cars has up until now been a manual one and human error led to the fact that not all cars were allowed to un-lap themselves.”. They have also now stated the instructions on cars unlapping will be automated.
