Marussia's Jules Bianchi has been handed a three-place grid penalty for tomorrow's Korean Grand Prix after Stewards found that he impended Paul di Resta in today's qualifying session at the Yeongam Circuit.
The Stewards believe that Bianchi, who was on an out lap could have safely let past Di Resta in Q1 but he didn't do so.
“The driver of car 22 was given a radio warning of the approach of car 14 (on a fast lap) but decided to stay on line to start his own flying lap. The stewards consider that car 22 could have safely allowed car 14 to pass before starting his flying lap.” read the official stewards statement.
The grid penalty won't really affect as he will only lose one place on the grid - he now starts in 22 instead of 21. Apart from the penalty, he was also given a reprimand - his second of the season.
