The FIA introduced random checks of car’s pre-race fuel weight at the beginning of the season to ensure they comply with the maximum limit of 110kg of fuel per race. Teams have to declare how much fuel they have put in their cars. When Leclerc’s car was checked in Abu Dhabi, it was found to contain almost 4.88kg more than the declaration.

Binotto said his team’s cars have had their fuel weights checked on many previous occasions with no problems. “I think this year we have been checked at least 10 times,” he said. “It’s not the first time, we’ve always been OK and today we got a discrepancy.”

Well....I wonder where the Jet-Mode was ?
