Van der Garde penalised

Van der Garde penalised

Giedo van der Garde was handed a five-place grid penalty for the British GP after being found guilty of taking out Nico Hulkenberg in Canada.

Van der Garde has an incident-packed grand prix on Sunday in Montreal during which he was hit with a drive-through penalty for ignoring blue flags and hitting Mark Webber.

That, though, wasn't his only incident and later he crashed into Hulkenberg.

As the Sauber driver came up to lap him at the final chicane, van der Garde again ignored the blue flags with the two making contact. Both drivers were forced to retire.

Van der Garde was later called before the stewards and handed a five-place grid penalty for the next race at Silverstone.

He insists it was Hulkenberg's fault.

"I was heading towards the hairpin with Hulkenberg alongside," he explained. "I moved over for him but he turned in in front of me in the braking zone and we made contact and that was the end of my race."
