Toro Rosso’s Sebastien Buemi has been punished by the German race stewards for his collision with Renault’s Nick Heidfeld during Sunday’s Nurburgring race. Buemi receives a five-place grid penalty for the next round in Hungary.

After a post-race investigation, the stewards decided the Swiss driver was at fault for the accident, which occurred on the approach to the chicane on lap 10. Although Buemi was able to continue to finish 15th, Heidfeld, whose Renault made contact with the Toro Rosso's right-rear tyre, retired from the race.
