Hulkenberg penalised after Force India protest

User Rating: / 0
Williams’ Nico Hulkenberg has had 20s added to his Singapore race time for leaving the track and gaining an advantage on lap one. It follows an identical penalty for Force India’s Adrian Sutil.
After receiving Sutil’s penalty, which dropped him from eighth to tenth in the results, Force India protested, claiming that Hulkenberg had committed the same offence.

After hearing evidence from Hulkenberg and Force India’s Vitantonio Liuzzi, the stewards agreed and also penalised the German, dropping him to tenth place. He originally crossed the line in ninth.

Sutil now moves up to ninth, having originally fallen to tenth following his penalty. Ferrari's Felipe Massa, who was tenth at the flag, moves up to eighth.
