Haas studied onboard movies, together with photographs from following vehicles, and the crew believes that Sergio Perez, Lance Stroll, Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant all dedicated a number of offences at Flip 6 that went unpunished.
The evaluation request shall be thought-about by the unique FIA stewards of the occasion in an online gathering on Wednesday.
Their first process shall be to determine whether or not or not the Haas request ticks all of the containers, notably by way of presenting a “vital and related new aspect” that wasn’t beforehand obtainable.
In the event that they agree that the request is a legitimate one, they’ll then contemplate that proof and rule on it.
“It is only a evaluation,” Steiner instructed Autosport. “There is a regulation in place. I imply, ultimately, if the stewards did not have the knowledge, clearly they could not take motion. I absolutely perceive that.
“However there may be data, and now we’ll see what the FIA does, as soon as they get the knowledge. I feel they should take motion, as a result of in any other case we make guidelines after which do not do something about it. That is my opinion.
“Okay, I absolutely respect in the event that they did not see the photographs, how can they rule this for positive? However now we’ve clear proof of it.
“We simply need to carry the case up, as a result of in any other case we have to change the principles. I am not an enormous fan of monitor limits, to be sincere.
“I am the final one who desires penalties on monitor limits. But when there is a rule in place, we want as a sport to respect guidelines, that’s extra the precept of it, than the penalty.”

All 4 drivers named in the proper of evaluation request completed forward of Haas’s Nico Hulkenberg, and within the case of Albon and Sargeant, by only a few seconds.
Nonetheless, Steiner downplayed any potential affect on the outcomes.
“I do not suppose the penalty will make a distinction to us the place we’re, in the meanwhile,” he stated.
“However ultimately, we simply must go by the principles, we can’t generally apply the rule, and generally not. It isn’t by alternative, a rule is there, and if you’ll want to change the rule, let’s talk about it, if you’ll want to change monitor limits, talk about it.
“However not whether it is written that it’s 4 occasions you get 5 seconds and any consequent [offences] you get one other 5 seconds, that is what we needs to be doing. Like we did earlier than. It isn’t that we’re inventing one thing new.”
He added: “We are going to make the case if we are able to make the case as a result of they need to hear it, as a result of there may be new proof. So we’ll make the case once we get to it.”
Different groups queried the abuse of monitor limits at Flip 6 after the race.
The FIA’s view, repeated in a gathering on the following race in Mexico, was that the CCTV did not present a transparent sufficient view to make correct assessments. Nonetheless, some offences at that nook have been flagged on the day.
The FIA has already agreed to have a greater system in place for subsequent yr’s race at COTA’s Flip 6.
