Haas won't appeal decision of Abu Dhabi protest against Force India

Written by  Nov 29, 2018

Haas have decided not to appeal the decision of a protest issued against Force India during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend.

The American squad took the action believing the Silverstone-based team, which was taken over by Lawrence Stroll during the summer, was in breach of the regulations defining a Formula 1 constructor.

Their argument was that the use of cars designed and built by the old Force India didn't meet the requirements set out and therefore, they should be ineligible to receive prize money from commercial rights holder Liberty Media.

However, the FIA rejected their claim suggesting the arrangement equated to outsourcing parts, as Haas themselves do with Dallara, and as a result Force India are indeed a constructor according to the rulebook.

Despite suggestions of an appeal and maybe even a civil case, Haas revealed their decision via Twitter.

"Haas has elected not to appeal the decision of the FIA Stewards (UAE Document 20 - Haas Protest Decision) following the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Nov. 22-25 2018," the tweet read.
