“Grid Penalties Ahoy at Rockingham”

June 9, 2012

The grid for the opening British Formula 3 race at Rockingham received something of a facelift this afternoon, when Carlin duo Carlos Sainz Jr and Harry Tincknell and Fortec’s Pipo Derani had their times excluded.

The trio were found by the stewards to have breached track limits, resulting in the exclusions; however these penalties have been restricted to race one.

Jazeman Jaafar and Hannes van Asseldonk also had their 2nd-fastest times disallowed; however they have kept their 3rd-fastest times. It meaning Jaafar stays 3rd on the grid, while van Asseldonk drops to 6th behind teammate Felix Serralles.

The race three grid is unaffected.
