Steiner takes another swipe at stewards

Date published: November 13 2017

Haas boss Guenther Steiner has once again questioned the consistency of the race stewards after Romain Grosjean was given a 10-second penalty at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Grosjean was involved a chaotic first lap and brought the first retirement in Esteban Ocon’s Formula 1 car after colliding with him.

The Frenchman was in disbelief after learning he had been punished with a 10-second penalty for causing the collision, stating that a puncture meant he had no control.

And Steiner echoes the feelings of his disgruntled driver.

“I share in my surprise more in the verdict,” Steiner told reporters.

“It doesn’t influence our result here, we were done by then and we took it as a test session, nothing else.

“But he got two penalty points for a race accident in my opinion and then you see Stroll got one penalty point when the speed difference was 140kph – and that was pretty dangerous.

“I’m struggling with consistency here and I continue to struggle.”
