Dennis Hauger, Michael Belov and Federico Malvestiti have all been handed post-race time penalties following today’s FIA Formula 3 Race 2 in Spa-Francorchamps.
Hauger has been punished for a collision with Calan Williams. The Hitech Grand Prix driver moved to the left whilst fighting with the Jenzer driver, which resulted in contact and broke the Australian’s front wing.
The stewards have determined that Hauger was wholly responsible for the contact and he has been issued with a 5s time penalty, which drops him from 18th to 19th. Belov’s penalty relates to a collision with Malvestiti, when he braked late and lost control of his Charouz Racing System car at the entry to Turn 5, which resulted in contact with the Jenzer driver.
The stewards determined that Belov was at fault for the collision and he has also been given a 5s time penalty, although he did not finish the race.
Finally, Malvestiti has been given a time penalty himself for a crash with Cameron Das on the final corner of the final lap. The Jenzer driver tagged the rear of the Carlin Buzz man and spun him around on track.
The Italian was found to be responsible for the collision and has been served a 10s time penalty, which drops him from 20th to 24th.
