    Protests


    #1 Ivar Kalamees - Markus Hoffmann - T1 Lap 1

    Protest: Kalamees turns too soon to T1 hitting Hoffmann's left side.

    Review: Kalemees, Hoffmann and Duivelaar approach T1 3-wide. When Kalamees starts the turn-in, there is no room for Hoffmann in between, resulting in light contact. Considering the unusual situation of going 3-wide into T1 and the narrow entry, plus the fact that Kalamees probably could not spot Duivelaar in his mirrors being alongside as well, the incident is deemed as a racing incident, even if Kalamees could probably have started the turn-in slightly later.

    Verdict: Racing incident

    #2 Alban Deslie - Martial Thomas - T3 Lap 1

    Protest: Thomas has all his car alongside Deslie's but Deslie drives left into Thomas that had nowhere else to go. Deslie hits Thomas on the right side and spuns him into the wall, destroying Thomas race.

    Review: At the exit of T1-T2, Thomas goes alongside Deslie on the outside of Curva Grande. Deslie, however, seems unaware of this, and continues his wide trajectory towards the outside. This leaves Thomas no room and results in heavy contact + damage. Considering this was not the first time Deslie has been involved in a similar incident, the penalty is reflected in this.

    Verdict: Warning and 1.0 penalty points to Deslie. 3.0 penalty points reached = license revoked & start from pit lane in the next race

    #3 Matteo Vecchioni- Markus Hoffmann - Ascari Lap 1

    Protest: Vecchioni forces Hoffmann out of track when Hoffmann was already in front of him after an overtake on the outside. Vecchioni then hits Hoffmann in the rear that unbalanced the rest of Hoffman's car and made him spun.

    Review: Vecchioni and Hoffmann approach Ascari alongside, with Hoffmann on the outside. Vecchioni is somewhat conservative in giving space to Hoffmann, but there is still barely room for a car length. At Ascari, Hoffmann's rear end gets unsettled and Vecchioni arguably makes light contact from behind, even though this is hard to determine. Whether there was light contact or not, in the view of the director, Hoffmann would have spun anyway due to running over the curb.

    Verdict: Racing incident

    #4 Martin Gosbee - Jack Keithley - T1 Lap 3

    Protest: Gosbee brakes too late and gets off the track. As rules state, a driver has to rejoin track only when it's clear. In this case, Gosbee re-enters right in front of Jack, who unable to avoid him, damages his front left suspension, bending his steering wheel and losing any chance in the race.

    Review: The incident was a direct result of a too late braking of Gosbee. Moreover, as Gosbee went wide over the curbs, he could have cut the corner straight instead of attempting to dangerously return back to the racing line, where Keithley was. With a more careful drive from Gosbee, this incident could have been mitigated. Since Gosbee let Keithley past directly after the incident, no time penalty is imposed on Gosbee.

    Verdict: 1.0 penalty points to Martin Gosbee

    #5 Henri Viirok - Michael Francesconi - T1 Lap 14

    Protest: Viirok destroys michales race, after this the damage of michael wont be fixed totally and the car is really bad, ultimately later on ending his race.

    Review: Viirok clearly misses his braking point while exiting the pits, consequently resulting in unavoidable contact and wing loss for Francesconi, who is alongside.

    Verdict: 1.0 penalty points to Henri Viirok.

    #6 Stephane Rouault - Matteo Vecchioni - T1 Lap 14

    Protest: Matteo gets overtaken by Stephane, short after that Stephane loses control and slams Matteo off the track. Stephane overtook Matteo with four wheels outside the track.

    Review: Identical incident to incident #4 (see #4 for analysis). Only difference was that in this case, Rouault did not let Vecchioni re-pass him and Vecchioni received less obvious damage than Keithley.

    Verdict: 0.5 penalty points and +10 seconds race time penalty to Stephane Rouault.

    #7 Martin Gosbee

    Protest:
    race cutting:
    lap 6 - t10 - 11:26
    lap 10 - t10 - 17:05
    lap 12 - t10 - 19:54
    lap 14 - t10 - 23:03
    lap 24 - t10 - 37:09
    lap 30 - t10 - 45:57
    lap 34 - t10 - 51:37
    lap 42 - t9 - 63:11
    lap 43 - t1 - 63:47
    lap 43 - t4 - 64:07
    lap 49 - t10 -73:10

    Review: A review of race laps confirms cuts on the following laps being within 101.5% of the fastest lap of the actual stint of the driver: Lap 6 T10, Lap 42 T9, Lap 43 T1 T4, Lap 49 T10

    Lap 10 T10 was a borderline case, however, in this case the interpretation was ambiguous, so the verdict goes in favour of the driver. The remaining laps were impossible to determine using standard angles, or were outside of 101.5%.

    Verdict: Nothing, since less than 10% of race laps cut.
