60-second Stop&Go Penalty for car #7
Offense: Causing a collision
Lap Number: 164
Offending Driver: Teun Louer
Car #7 tried to dive down the inside of car #145, which took a normal racing line through turn 3 and had already started turning in to the apex well before car #7 even pulled out of their slipstream to attempt the overtake. Because they were nowhere near alongside, this is deemed a reckless manoeuver by the #7 and although there were blue flags shown to car #145, that does NOT give the #7 the right to force their way through.
Reckless, avoidable minor contact, doubled to a 60-second StopGo because it was in an Orange Zone.
The full decision document will be made available to the team managers after the race.
