Pastor Maldonado has been hit with a 20-second penalty for causing the collision that put Lewis Hamilton out of the European GP.


Fighting for position on the penultimate lap of the 57-lap grand prix, the Williams driver attempted to overtake Hamilton and put all four wheels off the track.

However, he then came back on, hitting Hamilton and putting him to the wall and into retirement.

The duo were both called into the stewards' office to give their account of the incident.

However, before going in, Maldonado made it clear who he believed was to blame.

"He (Hamilton) tried a very aggressive movement on me," said the Venezuelan.

The stewards, though, did not agree and after deliberating slapped Maldonado with a 20-second penalty for "failing to rejoin the track in a safe manner."

The penalty drops Maldonado from tenth to 12th.
