Silverstone penalties for Kobayashi and Vergne

User Rating: / 0

Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi and Toro Rosso’s Jean-Eric Vergne have both been handed grid penalties for the next round of the season in Great Britain after causing collisions in Valencia on Sunday.
Kobayashi will be demoted five places on the grid, following his coming together with the Ferrari of Felipe Massa.

Vergne, meanwhile, received a 10-place grid drop and - due to the serious nature of the incident - a €25,000 fine for his clash with Heikki Kovalainen's Caterham on Lap 27.

Both Kobayashi and Vergne retired from the race due to damage sustained to their cars.

Mercedes' Michael Schumacher, who finished third, was also investigated for allegedly using his DRS under yellow flags, but stewards decided he had slowed sufficiently and deemed no further action necessary.
