Red Bull filed an official protest over DAS

July 5, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Red Bull Racing has formally protested the use by the Mercedes team of the DAS (Dual-Axis Steering) steering system, which allows you to change the toe angle.

Red Bull Racing believes that the DAS violates articles 3.8, 10.2 and 10.3 of the technical regulation, which deals with the stiffness and immobility of aerodynamic devices and the prohibition of changes to the suspension system while driving. The success of the Red Bull protest depends on whether DAS stewards would be considered part of the suspension or, as Mercedes claims, part of the steering.

Mercedes representatives are called to meet with the stewards at 19:10 local time.
