30-second Stop&Go Penalty for car #72
Offense: Causing a collision
Lap Number: 61
Offending Driver: Balint Zsidi
Car #72 attempts a pass into the second Ford chicane on the #997 to lap them. The #997 was following the racing line through the corner and did not make an unpredictable move, and the #72 was optimistic to try to make a pass there and did not back out in time, causing contact. Reckless due to no significant overlap and contact made to the rear of the #997, avoidable as it’s the faster car’s responsibility to pass safely, and minor, so a 30s Stop Go is given.
The full decision document will be made available to the team managers after the race.
