20-second Time Penalty for car #163

Offense: Causing a collision
Lap Number: 2
Offending Driver: Kevin Vooijs

Car #163 pokes its nose in on the inside of car #19 at turn 11, while there is no room. The car was not alongside by a significant portion when car #19 committed to turning into the apex. The stewards deem that car #163 had no right to space on the inside, therefore was fully responsible for the collision that spun car #19 around. Not reckless, but avoidable minor contact, thus the equivalent of a drivethrough penalty.

The full decision document will be made available to the team managers after the race.
