The disqualification places Norris in second position and elevates Carlos Sainz to the podium places. “Sergio Pérez advances to fourth place and extends his advantage over Hamilton in the fight for second place in the drivers' championship,” the statement read.

Although representatives of both teams sought to minimize the punishment by 'justifying' themselves for the Sprint races and the poor conditions of the Circuit of the Americas, they did not proceed before the Formula 1 Stewards, who specified the area that caused their disqualification.

Skids located in the area -825≥ XR ≥ - 1025 do not comply with Article 3.5.9 e) of the 2023 Formula One Technical Regulations.”


The only one who kept his place was Max Verstappen, who after 56 Laps in the Austin GP achieved his 50th victory in the 'Great Circus', however, Hamilton's disqualification benefited Lando Norris (he rose to second), Carlos Sainz (3rd) and the Mexican Sergio 'Checo' Pérez, who finished in fourth position.

Finally, George Russell, who little by little was 'turning off' at the Circuit of The Americas, managed to climb to fifth position, Pierre Gasly (6th), Lance Stroll (7th).

The one who had a 'double benefit' was the Asian driver Yuki Tsunoda, who climbed to eighth place and achieved the fastest lap, while Alexander Albon finished in ninth place and the American Logan Sargeant, added his first point of the season by finishing in tenth place.

The next race will be the Mexican Grand Prix, where 'Checo' Pérez will seek to increase the advantage over Hamilton and consolidate his position in the drivers' runners-up position.
