5-second Stop&Go Penalty for car #69
Offense: Causing a collision
Lap Number: 39
Offending Driver: Lazaros Filippakos
Car #69 misjudged the trajectory of car #73 in Sunset, making contact to the rear of car #73, spinning them around. Not reckless and minor contact because of the small speed difference, but because it is in an Orange Zone, the LMP is expected to take all possible measures to avoid contact and therefore the penalty severity is increased from a Drivethrough to a 5-second StopGo.
The full decision document will be made available to the team managers after the race.
