Following today’s Qualifying session at Circuit de Catalunya, two drivers were handed penalties. First, Giuliano Alesi was found guilty of driving in an erratic manner between Turns 9 and 10. The Frenchman who had qualified P7 received a 3 grid drop for today’s Race 1.
Niko Kari was also penalised after he failed to stop for weighing and his team Arden International worked on the car afterwards. As a consequence the Finnish driver will start from the pitlane for Race 1.
