PHM Racing by Charouz’s Piotr Wisnicki, Sophia Floersch and Roberto Faria will all start Sunday’s Feature Race from the pit lane.

The team were found to have exceeded the total of 11 personnel working on their cars by allowing a representative to scan their tyres after Parc Ferme.

The Stewards determined that the actions were a serious breach of Article 21.5 of the Operational Staff Regulations, which are designed to be a key cost limiting component for the Championship. These additional personnel released existing team members to perform other functions, with a severe penalty issued due to its seriousness.

As a result, the trio will all have to start the Feature Race from the pit lane in their Qualifying order, with Wisnicki lining up ahead of Floersch and Faria.
