The FIA concluded that there were no safety issues with the seat belts at Daniila Kvyata at the GP of Portugal after AlphaTauri changed its internal processes.
After last month’s race in Portimao, a clip of a recording emerged from Kvyat’s car in which Kvyat complained via radio that his seat belts had failed.
Kvyat told his team that his "belts were unbuckled" shortly after his last boxing trip and that he was "not safe", but he was told to stay out, as there were still 10 laps left until the end of the race.
For the second time this season, the driver reported a belt problem during the race, following an incident in which he was involved Charles Leclerc at the Spanish GP in August.
Leclerc drove two laps with his seat belt unbuckled before going to the pits so they could reattach it. That case has not even been investigated.
When asked about the incident, an FIA security representative and the director of the F1 race Michael Masi he said this was discussed with AlphaTauri and the team’s processes were changed in response to avoid a recurrence of the problem.
“Yes, they were a bit loose and AlphaTauri changed its actions around that. That was it. "- MICHAEL MASI
Kvyat said last weekend in Turkey that AlphaTauri had internally investigated the matter and corrected it.
"We had a team investigation into that, I think that's understood. It has been analyzed and corrected. I don’t think that’s going to happen anymore now. It wasn’t the best moment there, of course. But we prefer to keep it within the team. We fixed the problem. He's not there anymore. "- DANIIL KVYAT
The Turkish Grand Prix highlighted another major safety concern after the start of the second qualifying round while the recovery vehicle was still on the track, albeit under yellow flags.
The drivers quickly condemned the decision, and the four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel he said there should be a "zero tolerance rate" for such incidents.
Massi said the FIA has been constantly reviewing its decisions and incidents that are happening so it can learn from them in the future.
"We review every incident that has happened, be it minor or major."- MICHAEL MASI
“We will continue to learn from this handbook, no different from teams that teach them about different elements between racing weekends. We are absolutely no different. For our part, as I have said many times, safety is our number one priority and you learn from everything every time a car comes out on the track. ”
