User Rating: / 0
The McLaren and Sauber teams have both been fined for unsafe pit-stop releases during Sunday’s race at Silverstone.

McLaren were fined €5,000 after a wheel gun problem led to Jenson Button leaving his box with no nut on his front-right wheel. The British driver was forced to pull over and retire at the end of the pit lane as a result.

Sauber were given a €20,000 fine after releasing Kamui Kobayashi into the path of a Williams. Stewards also handed Kobayashi a 10-second stop-go penalty during the race for the incident. He later retired with technical issues.
