Following the conclusion of the FIA Formula 3 Sprint Race in Sakhir, Jenzer Motorsport’s Matías Zagazeta has received two post-race penalties, including a grid drop for tomorrow’s Feature Race.

Firstly, the Peruvian driver was judged to have driven off the track at Turn 8 and gained a lasting advantage in his battle with Van Amersfoort Racing’s Tommy Smith.

Following a post-race hearing with both drivers and examining evidence, Stewards determined that Car 22 was alongside Zagazeta at the apex of the corner and in full control, leaving enough room for the Jenzer driver to remain on circuit.

The Stewards concluded that the Peruvian had driven off the track, exceeded track limits and maintained the position, gaining an advantage in the process.

Stewards decided to hand out a 10-second time penalty for the incident.

The Jenzer driver also received another 10-second time penalty that has been converted into a five-place grid drop for the next race in which he participates.

Following the initial incident, Zagazeta and Smith made contact at Turn 11 on Lap 15.

After examining evidence after the race, Stewards deemed that the Jenzer driver was wholly responsible for the contact, resulting in another penalty being awarded.

Having originally qualified in 20th position in Qualifying, Zagazeta is now set to start Saturday’s Feature Race from 25th on the grid.
