FIA regress curfew allowances Red Bull, Mercedes and Virgin

Published

on

Sept.25 – Formula 1 governing body (FIA) has returned curfew allowances of Red Bull Racing, Mercedes GP and Virgin Racing following mystification over sporting regulations in Singapore.

Red Bull Racing, Mercedes GP and Virgin Racing have also won back one of their four allowed curfew exemptions, after the FIA decided that the staff who entered the track early on Saturday were not involved directly with the car.

Marketing staff from the two teams, plus Red Bull Racing, were found to have entered the track before the 4pm cut-off point – which is a breach of the new-for-2011 curfew restrictions. The decision had left the teams unhappy because they all believed that the marketing staff in question had no direct involvement with the cars.

FIA said: “Having spoken to the Mercedes GP Petronas F1 Team and Marussia Virgin Racing team in more details, it is apparent that the team personnel concerned with the breach of the curfew were not involved in the operation of the car.”
