Case ICA-2019-03

On the basis of a report from the FIA Technical Delegate, on 6 July 2019, the Stewards appointed for the Race of Portugal found that car No. 69 (driver Jean-Karl Vernay) was in breach of Appendix 1 of the 2019 FIA WTCR Sporting Regulations, as it was found to be disrespecting the maximum boost pressure published in the Balance Of Performance chart for the event (0.45% instead of 0.30%). The Stewards therefore decided to disqualify the car No. 69 from Race 1.

Case ICA-2019-04

On the basis of a report from the FIA Technical Delegate, on 7 July 2019, the Stewards appointed for the Race of Portugal found that car No. 69 (driver Jean-Karl Vernay) was in breach of Appendix 1 of the 2019 FIA WTCR Sporting Regulations, as it was found to be disrespecting the maximum boost pressure published in the Balance Of Performance chart for the event (0.43% instead of 0.30%). The Stewards therefore decided to disqualify the car No. 69 from Race 3.

Case ICA-2019-05

On the basis of a report from the FIA Technical Delegate, on 6 July 2019, the Stewards appointed for the Race of Portugal found that car No. 22 (driver Frédéric Vervisch) was in breach of Appendix 1 of the 2019 FIA WTCR Sporting Regulations, as it was found to be disrespecting the maximum boost pressure published in the Balance Of Performance chart for the event (0.44% instead of 0.30%). The Stewards therefore decided to disqualify the car No. 22 from Race 1.

On 10 July 2019, Leopard Racing Team Audi Sport and Comtoyou Team Audi Sport decided to appeal Decisions No. 18, 39 and 17 taken by the Stewards during the Race of Portugal.
