Renault has again issued a protest concerning the legality of Racing Point’s RP20, following the conclusion of Formula 1’s Hungarian Grand Prix.
Renault protested the RP20 following the Styrian Grand Prix and the stewards deemed the protest admissible.
Renault has its suspicions that Racing Point has contravened the regulations regarding the design of its RP20.
Racing Point, while never denying it copied Mercedes’ W10 as much as possible, has dismissed the allegations and insists it owns all of the intellectual property and designs of its RP20.
An investigation was launched, with the brake duct parts impounded by the FIA, while Mercedes was also required to comply with the directive.
As a decision has yet to be made by Formula 1’s governing body Renault has once again protested the legality of the RP20s.
Racing Point qualified on the second row at the Hungaroring and secured fourth courtesy of Lance Stroll and seventh from Sergio Perez.
The team holds fourth in the Constructors’ Championship, level on 40 points with McLaren, while Renault is in sixth place, on 12 points.
