I think the second time being referred to was the fuel overuse in Austin, but that's different in nature to the Monza floor. A 170g fuel overuse on a track when you normally use ~ 2000 g/lap is pretty difficult to control in the final few seconds of a race. Haas cut it too close or took a risk or whatever, and they went over. Maybe they should have handled it better. But that's different than showing up at Italy with a non-compliant floor and hoping your competitors would let you get away with it all weekend long. The floor was just premeditated lousy judgement.

ah, ok. I agree with you... those are two completely different scenarios.

It could be worth it for them as the car is still seen to finish in the position, so looks good for sponsors

They gambled on being lapped towards the end and as such expected to race one lap less than they did. Leading cars suffered from tire deg too much and slowed down, not knowing they were choking Haas’ race as well. Bold strategy.

Still wonder why they didn’t ‘morph’ the small curves on their floor as they were seemingly not relevant to aero performance, like RBR 3d print copied Ferrari slots in 1 week. Anything better than disqualification. Learnings to a new team I suppose. They were the only team not meeting the fia deadline.

Two different and unrelated incidents indeed.

With Rich energy drink as their title sponsor the team will be known as "Rich Energy Haas F1 Team" as written in FIA's 2019 entry list.
