Stéphane Heulot CEO of the Belgian team, immediately reacted to the news: “This is a very regrettable and unacceptable incident. As soon as we heard this news, we suspended the team leader. There is no excuse for such behavior, it simply should not happen in a race. We would also like to express our apologies to the signalman and the organization.”

The team DS and the staff member have already talked to each other, however Roes has been suspended from the team for the time being. “Carl realizes that he has made a mistake.
