Weren't Racing Point the ones who protested Renault's illegal braking system and got them disqualified from Japanese GP last year? 😂

Is this likely to result in anything?

How do Renault know about RP's brake ducts?

Wonder if RP ease off for a few races to take the heat off them?

Whoa. 

Got it. 

Hulkenburg will get his podium, only to be told an hour later that the RP car is deemed illegal and thus all results are now void. As he somberly re-corks the champagne bottle, the pressure forces it to pop and hit Hulk in the eye, making his vision blurry at best and thus ending the most unlucky racing career in history.

Oh oh. 

Proper clusterfuck. So they bought the parts from Mercedes when it was still legal to do so, and then copied them afterwards for their new car. And FIA apparently knew about it, but didn't say a word. Wonder what the outcome of this will be...

15 points? A 3rd place would get them the 15 points back. Just saying. :ph34r:

It's a slap on the wrist, really. 15 points is nothing, and they are allowed to use the car. I see more protests incoming.

Also Mercedes sold their designs to Racing Point after the regulations came into force, yet they get away with it completely xD

That's like fining a Man City a few million quid for their corruption.

The epitome of a drop in the ocean.

Ferrari have just confirmed their intent to appeal the FIA's ruling on Racing Point. 

Renault and McLaren are expected to appeal as well.

Please leave them alone as long as Nico is in the car. When Perez is back, you can do with them what you like.

How can the FIA fine Racing Point 15 points and 400,000 Euros for something they deem technically legal early in the season yet allow Ferrari to run a whole season with something they deem illegal retrospectively but take no action?

Because Ferrari made them an offer they couldn't refuse.

Williams joined the protests :o quite unexpected, given their close links with Mercedes.

So 5 teams lodged appeals now. Ferrari, Renault, McLaren, Williams on one side, and Racing Point on the other.
