"He overtook me outside of Turn 1!" With this radio message Fernando Alonso has launched in the US Grand Prix in Austin a new discussion.

As Formula 1 race director announcing Michael Masi from the International Automobile Federation (FIA), he will try to talk with the drivers at the next opportunity in Mexico, and that "all" as he says. Reason: "I see as two facets, let's call it that way."

Masi explains: "There is on the one hand, the overtaking and pushing it down the track, and then overtaking [off the track]." All this will be the topic when Formula 1 drivers exchange the next time with.

why the incident was "borderline"

What will be exactly his message to the driver then, in addition to Masi silent in Austin from. but he said he could Alonso's anger "of course understand." Even more: The scene between him and Raikkonen was "certainly borderline" was, says Masi.

One could also argue in this incident, Raikkonen was passed only außenrum on Alonso because the latter had pushed him over the edge of the track. "That is why it is borderline," says Masi. "You can give the scene one way or see."

The stewards saw it as no need for action and gave up an investigation. And Alonso? He made it a few laps after the controversial scene with Raikkonen's team-mate Antonio Giovinazzi not much different when he came off his hand when overtaking on the track. intention was that not been insured Alonso.

F1 driver welcome system to deletion of lap times under double yellow

Not because it already is Alonso, but ...

That takes him from race director Masi, but he has to smile already, because once again Alonso struck with such action. It is "funny how it comes to these incidents [Alonso]," says Masi. But he also says: "I look at every single incident for itself, namely, irrespectively of who is involved in it."

Key to the evaluation of a situation by the Stewards is also home to the respective context. Say: the history of an incident. Assuming he was speaking against the teams from a "recommendation for action," said Masi.

This means: He will arrange at no redemption of the positions, but put the those affected only close. "It's a recommendation," said Masi. "The teams, of course, my advice can not follow. I can not force them, my advice to heart. I suggest something before."

In Austin gave Masi once Alpine and once at Alfa Romeo the note to return the occupied off the track position, respectively. Alonso and later Giovinazzi did the same.

"If they do not, I give the situation to the stewards, who then make a judgment," says Masi. Because he does not meet such decisions as race director. Its role is, however, that there is clarity with the drivers. For example, with a new conversation in Mexico.
