Hamilton and Leclerc Disqualified from F1 US GP for Car Plank Rules Breach
At the Circuit of The Americas, Lewis Hamilton showcased his impressive skills with an upgraded Mercedes floor, closing in on Max Verstappen during the final stint of the race. Hamilton managed to reduce the gap to just 2.25 seconds by the end.
On the other hand, Charles Leclerc opted for a one-stop strategy, unlike other drivers in the race. While this decision initially seemed promising, it eventually hamstrung Leclerc’s performance. As the race progressed, he fell back to the sixth position due to the vulnerability caused by his chosen strategy.
However, the story didn’t end there as post-race inspections led to an unexpected turn of events. Both Hamilton and Leclerc were disqualified from the F1 US GP for breaching car plank rules. The car plank, a mandatory part of the car’s floor, was found to be non-compliant with the regulations.
The disqualification came as a blow to both drivers, who had showcased their skills throughout the race. It served as a reminder that even minor infractions can lead to severe consequences in the world of Formula 1.
Despite the setback, Hamilton and Leclerc have undoubtedly left their mark on the F1 US GP and will continue to push boundaries in future races.
