Carlin Motorsport’s Jack Harvey has been hit with a 30-second post-race penalty following a collision with Pipo Derani on the opening lap of this morning’s race.

After running most of the opening tour in 2nd spot, Harvey dived past Derani at Brooklands and was adjudged to have forced the Brazilian off the road. The pair collided, with Derani retiring with a bent track rod on his left front.

The clash delayed Harvey, who was passed by title rival Felix Serralles, who went on to win by 0.4 seconds. Harvey’s other championship challenger – Jazeman Jaafar – came home 3rd, thereby deepening the effect of Harvey’s stinging penalty.

The added time drops Harvey from 2nd to 12th place, losing the Lincolnshire man a bundle of points.
On top of his time penalty, Harvey was also hit with a 5-place grid drop for the weekend’s final race, ensuring he will have start from 8th on the grid.
