Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has dismissed suggestions F1's continued track-limit furore is confusing and believes too much focus is given to the topic.
The Spanish Grand Prix offered respite from the constant debate around the subject of circuit boundaries after high-profile incidents in the opening three rounds of the year, although FIA race director Michael Masi did alter his event notes before a car had even turned a wheel in Barcelona.
"I wouldn't say it is confusing," said Steiner. "There is too much talk about track limits of late. That is my opinion.
"We are focusing too much on track limits, there is always a drama about track limits, was he in or was he out? Why did he get a penalty? Why didn't he get one?
"I guess race control is pretty busy with the track limits as well because there is just too much talk about it. It should be pretty clear what is in and what is out."
A task force is being drawn up to get to the bottom of the problem but Steiner insisted there would be no easy fix in the short term.
"We always talk but these are meetings behind closed doors," he added. "The solutions are not easy to find and work needs to be done to find solutions.
"Obviously, nobody is happy with how it works at the moment. The solution is not as easy otherwise something would have been done.
"There is work going on to try to find a solution and to pick the best one because there is more than one solution to this but what is the best one for everything? The most important thing is safety for the drivers."
What do you think?
The track limits issue is ridiculous.
Tear up the tarmac which is present all the way around these tracks these days and simply put back gravel traps. If a driver strays off, they are punished. No disputes about favoritism, no debate about was the limit rule being implemented correctly. No debate about was the tire over or not. Exceed the limit and the gravel trap punishes your time or worse, it captures your car and your race is over. No intervention from FIA.
