Formula E team caught using an RFID scanner that could collect live tire data from other cars


The stewards were informed by the technical delegate that the competitor had installed RFID scanning equipment at the entrance to the pit lane this morning, allowing live data to be collected from all cars. First, it is generally forbidden for competitors to install or place any equipment in the pit lane. Second, collecting data through this method gives the competitor a lot of information, which is a huge and unfair advantage. Taking all the circumstances together, the Stewards believe that the punishment given is justified.
