Thread: F1 Spa Crash

    F1 Spa Crash

    Did anyone watch the race? How bad was that smash! I though the car was going to land on top of Alonso!!!

    Romain Grosjean won't be taking part in the Formula One Italian GP for Lotus after receiving a one-race suspension for his role in the first corner crash in Spa.

    He has also been fined 50,000 euros ($62,900).

    Grosjean made contact with Lewis Hamilton, triggering a crash that also eliminated Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez, and delayed several others.

    The FIA Stewards decided that he had committed an “extremely serious breach of the regulations which had the potential to cause injury to others. It eliminated leading championship contenders from the race. The stewards note the team conceded the action of the driver was an extremely serious mistake and an error of judgement. Neither the team nor the driver made any submission in mitigation of penalty.”

    Lotus may run another driver in Italy in place of Grosjean.

    Pastor Maldonado was also penalized for infractions at Spa. He will drop 10-places on the Italian GP grid next week after earning two separate penalties on Sunday. The first is for jumping the start, and has been applied because he later crashed and thus could not serve a penalty that impacted his Spa race.

    Having been delayed in the first corner crash--he was tipped into the spin at the exit of La Source, after the main accident--he was at the back for the restart. Maldonado then ran into Timo Glock at the exit of La Source, punting the Marussia driver into a spin, and doing enough damage to the front of the car to ensure he retired later around the lap. That also earned a five place penalty.

    Maldonado had already been given a three-place penalty in Spa after a blocking incident in qualifying.
