Gutierrez handed Silverstone penalty

Gutierrez handed Silverstone penalty

Esteban Gutierrez has been given a 10-place grid penalty for next month's British Grand Prix after the Sauber driver's release from the pits was adjudged to be unsafe.

During his first pit stop in Sunday's Austrian GP, his mechanics struggled to fit the right rear wheel and while the Mexican only made it approximately 20m down the pit-lane before his garage realised their error, a mandatory penalty applies.

While he was given a 10-second stop-go penalty during the race, he will now also be docked 10 positions after qualifying at Silverstone in two weeks' time.

The stewards decided against penalizing Sebastian Vettel after the German broke his Red Bull's front wing when he tried to overtake Gutierrez.

The decision was made in accordance with "the new guidelines from the Formula One Commission" that calls for fewer penalties for minor incidents.
