Four weeks after he was able to walk away from a horror crash in Monaco, American GP3 driver Conor Daly has been penalised for the crash, putting all the blame on his shoulders.
The Lotus driver was stuck behind the car of Russian driver Dimitry Suranovic, who had lost his rear wing. Coming into the Mirabeau turn towards the hairpin, Suranovic and Daly touched a bit, in which a small piece of Daly´s front wing was torn off. The two drivers continued into the Tunnel section, and video clearly shows Suranovic blocking Daly on several occasions. As they exited the tunnel Suranovic once again appeared to be drifting left, which caused Daly’s car to clip the back of Suranovic and send it rearing upward instantly.
Daly’s car was almost vertical and it slid down towards the chicane, before it hit the top of the left , almost flipping right over. It then skidded to the run-off area on the right. Daly emerged un-hurt from the accident, but now, after four weeks of deliberation, the decision has been made to penalize Daly for the accident.
