Williams another fine

Author of the article: , published on October 25, 2013.


The Williams team will have to pay a fine of 60.000 euros due to another problem with the wheel nut. In free practice in India, a wheel nut flew off Williams' Pastor Maldonado car, and a similar problem occurred in a previous race in Japan. Commissioners, including experienced racer Tom Kristensen this weekend, opted for a fine, as usual, even though the bike did not fall off the car.

After the investigation, it was established that the wheel nut was screwed over the thread when stopping in the pits, and the main safety pin was not activated. Even the auxiliary pin of the nut did not hold in place, and the commissioners, despite another problem, did not issue a higher penalty to the team than usual, as the wheel of the ax remained on the race car.
