Chinese Stewards Report

Formula 1

Incident: JFROCHER retired his car too close to the track. 

Stewards View: JFROCHER retired car came back onto track during the race, and didn’t ghost. This can be dangerous to other drivers. Luckily, there were no incidents, but it could’ve been a lot worse. 

Decision: JFROCHER will receive a reprimand.

Formula 2

Incident: Fear,  Eggly and NotOnPole made contact on the back straight. 

Stewards View: NotOnPole is the only completely innocent driver in this incident. Fear cannot do much different either as he is penned in by Eggly on his right and Pole on his left. Eggly is initially veering left, but corrects it. He then makes another correction and slightly starts veering left again, which in turn causes the contact between him and Fear, and also retires NotOnPole. Eggly should have used to available space to his right to avoid this collision. 

Decision: Eggly will receive 3 points on his licence.

Incident: Ellis, Taffy and Steve make contact in turn 1 on lap 1.

Stewards View: It looks as though Taffy and Steve turn into Ellis and squeeze him at the same time, causing Taffy to spin on the inside. Given this was lap 1, turn 1 and cars are fighting for space, nobody is primarily at fault. 

Decision: No further action warranted.

Formula 3

Incident: Mpihkanen slightly impedes SaamUK during qualifying. 

Stewards View: It looks as though Mpihkanen see’s SaamUK late and tries to move out the way. Although he doesn’t directly impede SaamUK, he is a distraction and needs to stay off the racing line. 

Decision: Mpihkanen will receive a reprimand.
