Guenther Steiner has claimed Haas has "clear evidence" which it hopes will be successful in its right of review appeal into the United States Grand Prix.

The team has successfully lodged a RoR into the results of the Austin race, where track limits was a problem throughout, with the case based around breaches at Turn 6 by Alex Albon and Sergio Perez.

The corner was not one monitored during the race, and with no suitable camera evidence proving Albon in particular breached the limits, no penalty was handed out, with Nico Hulkenberg finishing 11th for Haas.

As is its right, the team lodged a review appeal within 14 days of the race, the first part of which is set to take place on Wednesday 8th November, with Red Bull, Aston Martin and Williams all summoned to the virtual hearing.

The first part of the hearing will determine whether Haas has supplied the 'relevant, new evidence' unavailable to the stewards at the time, with the actual reviewing of the incidents themselves depending on this threshold being met.

Steiner confident

"There are rules. If the stewards do not have the correct information, then of course they cannot intervene," Steiner told Motorsport Total.

"We completely understand that. However, now we have the information and we will see what the FIA ​​does once they have that information at their disposal.

"I completely understand that [the stewards] have not seen the images yet, but if that is the case, how can they make a decision with certainty?

"However, now we have clear evidence."

It is believed this is the on-board camera footage from the cars that was unavailable at the time, with a precedent for camera footage being used to deliver a penalty being set at the 2020 Austrian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton was handed a three-place grid penalty after Red Bull became aware of video footage from the 360 degree camera on the Mercedes that showed Hamilton not slowing under a yellow flag in qualifying for when then-team-mate Valtteri Bottas went off in Q3.
