Aston Martin gives the finishing touch to Carlos Sainz in Ferrari: he is out

The penalty for exceeding the track limits has affected several drivers, but the FIA’s decision is controversial.

Aston Martin has dealt a blow to Carlos Sainz by filing an appeal at the conclusion of the Austrian Grand Prix. This appeal has resulted in Sainz’s fall to sixth position, after being added a 10-second penalty for exceeding the track limits. During the final laps of the race, Aston Martin radioed a message to Fernando Alonso asking him to pick up the pace and reduce the gap to the drivers in front of him.

At that time, Alonso did not understand the reason for the request, but the British team was fully aware that the FIA ​​had left several drivers without sanction, despite committing the same infractions. The Red Bull Ring circuit, known for its high speed, presented an additional challenge with the track boundaries located between the curbs and the asphalt. This setup has conditioned and ultimately doomed most of the drivers during the race weekend.
