Pastor Maldonado (Williams) and Kamui Kobayashi (Sauber), have both been fined for incidents during the British Grand Prix.
There were plenty of close wheel-to-wheel action at Sunday´s race at Silverstone, but it got a little too heated between Pastor Maldonado and Sergio Perez. The two were battling for positions, when they touched and Perez retired, while Maldonado has received a €10,000, £8,000, fine as well, as a reprimand for his driving.
And Kamui Kobayashi has received a €25,000, £19,800, for unsafe release pit stop, in which he accidentally hit several of his pit crew members.
“The accident at the pit stop was my fault and I want to apologise to the team,” said Kobayashi.
“Of course I had to push hard for points, but without doubt I braked too late in the pit lane. The front wheels locked, I couldn’t control the car, and this is how I overshot the pit box. I am terribly sorry this happened, and I hope the three mechanics I hit get well soon.”
