Maldonado hit with 10-place penalty

Saturday 24-November-2012 19:43

Pastor Maldonado will drop from sixth to 16th on the Brazilian GP grid after incurring his third reprimand for missing the weighbridge.

Under Formula One regulations, three reprimands in a season earn a driver an automatic 10-place grid penalty.

And as Maldonado was handed a third in the wake of Saturday's qualifying for missing the weighbridge, the Williams driver will drop to 16th on the Interlagos grid.

Maldonado's other reprimands this season were for blocking in the Chinese GP and crashing into Sergio Perez in the British race.
