Steiner: ‘We are not the governing body’
“We were conscious that maybe it would be difficult to make it stick, but at least we tried,” Steiner explained to media including RacingNews365.
“What came out is that the stewards actually said is that the FIA is doing a bad job. We didn’t get anything out of it, but you have to try, in life you have to try.
“What the [stewards] said is that what [the FIA] should have done is make sure that a CCTV camera was at Turn 6 – that is the number one [most important thing].
“They should make sure they’ve got the means in place to check their own regulations, not me sitting at home or Aston Martin checking what they are doing. That is not the team’s job.
“In half an hour, we didn’t have enough time [to lodge a protest], because that is not our job.
“We are not the governing body, we pay somebody to do this job.
“[The protest] was worth it for the whole of Formula 1, not only for us, because everybody agreed, but no-one did anything about it.
“It is about helping Formula 1 to develop the rules, but as long as we move forward and get better in the future, that is already a win.”
