The Sahara Force India Formula One Team have confirmed that the reason behind the Silverstone based outfit breaking curfew at the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne on Thursday night was a simple mistake by a team member.
The team released a statement to clarify the matter:
The curfew was broken by an honest mistake of a team member walking to the circuit a bit early this morning. The team member simply got their timings mixed up given the unusual schedule here in Melbourne (not to mention jet lag)
FIA Technical delegate Jo Bauer has confirmed that no action will be taken against the team regarding the matter.
Force India now have one more curfew joker that they can use this season.
