Racing Point: Appeal judges will discover the truth
Racing Point team principal Otmar Szafnauer believes a deep-dive investigation via an appeal will unearth the truth about his team's car this season.
Racing Point is one of five teams to have lodged an intention to appeal the penalty of the deduction of 15 constructors' championship points and a €400,000 fine after the rear brake ducts on its RP20 contravened design rules in the FIA sporting regulations.
Ferrari, McLaren, Williams, and Renault, the latter the team which lodged the protests that led to the stewards' hearing at Silverstone on Wednesday, stand in opposition.
Szafnauer, though, is ready to take on the 'gang of four', and feels the International Court of Appeal judges - that are independent of the FIA - will uncover the facts of the case that may have been overlooked by the stewards.
"I was asked a question, 'If there's an appeal process, and they start looking into your emails, are you worried?' And my answer was: 'No, I'm not worried'," said Szafnauer.
