Another grid penalty for Gutierrez

Another grid penalty for Gutierrez

Esteban Gutierrez has, for the second race in succession, been slapped with a grid penalty for the next event.

Racing against Pastor Maldonado in the 52-lap British Grand Prix, the Sauber driver crashed into the Lotus at Brooklands.

Such was the angle of the impact that Gutierrez lifted Maldonado's car into the air.

However, it was the Mexican racer who retired because of damage.

A poor situation has now gone from bad to worse as he has been handed a three-place penalty for the next race in Germany.

The FIA statement read: "Having viewed all the video available and having heard from the drivers, the Stewards determined that the driver of car 21 [Gutierrez] was predominantly at fault, causing a collision at Turn 16 between him and the driver of car 13 [Maldonado]."
