Force India appeal Perez penalty

Force India have lodged an official request for Sergio Perez's penalty, claiming there are "new elements" that need to be examined.

Perez was handed a five-place grid penalty for Sunday's Austrian GP after he deemed be responsible his and Felipe Massa's crash in Canada.

The Montreal stewards ruled that Perez had changed his racing line, resulting in the duo colliding and slamming in the barriers at force.

Force India, though, have appeal the penalty.

According to the official F1 website, the midfield team wants "new elements" relating to the crash examined.

It is now in the hands of the Austrian stewards who will meet on Friday to discuss the matter.
