Andreas Seidl believes that having a permanent group of stewards in Formula 1 will not secure consistent decisions.

Details:

  • The stewards’ decisions have been questioned recently after a number of controversial events occured.
  • One of the possible solutions to the problem is having the same stewards during every race weekend.
  • The McLaren team principal assumes that there are other reasons why the stewards make inconsistent decisions.

What he had to say:

  • “To be honest, my opinion hasn’t changed on this.”
  • “I don’t think that not having permanent stewards is the issue, to be honest, because as far as I understand, whenever there’s a case popping up, the first thing that stewards are doing is going back through the history of cases and see racing precedents and check if is it comparable or not, in order to try to be consistent.”
  • “I understand that after each race weekend, there’s a lot of exchange between stewards to make sure everyone is on the same level of information and understand what’s happened in detail.”
