Invalidated Lap Time for car #7

Offense: Leaving the track and gaining an advantage
Lap Number: 5
Offending Driver: Loic Meunier

Car #7 had not yet set a lap time when they went out of the pits with just over 2 minutes to go. The car completely cut turns 7, 8 and 9 during its out-lap at significant speed, which resulted in the car making it to the line with only 1 second to spare. This allowed them to start a flying lap, which they definitely would not have been able to do if they had taken turns 7, 8 and 9 normally. Therefore, the stewards agree that this falls under leaving the track and gaining an advantage, invalidating the lap time of lap 6.

The full decision document will be made available to the team managers after the race.
