Lawrence Stroll, BWT Racing Point Formula One Team chairman, is furious at four Formula 1 teams after they announced they will be appealing the decision on the legality of Racing Points brake duct.

A decision on Friday announced the team will be getting deducted 15 points and fined 400,000 euros after their rear brake ducts were deemed illegal due to using Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team data to design them. However, they have been told that they can compete with the same car for the remainder of this season.

This prompted an appeal from Racing Point, to prove their innocence but also further appeals from Scuderia Ferrari, McLaren F1 Team, Renault DP World F1 Team and Williams Racing as they don’t believe the punishment is enough.

Stroll added “I do not often speak publicly, however I am extremely angry at any suggestion we have been underhand or have cheated – particularly those comments coming from our competitors,

I have never cheated at anything in my life. These accusations are completely unacceptable and not true.

“My integrity and that of my team are beyond question.

Everyone at Racing Point was shocked and disappointed by the FIA ruling and firmly maintain our innocence.
