Bianchi and Pic to get 10-place grid penalty for Japanese GP



23640_mMarussia’s Jules Bianchi and Caterham’s Charles Pic receive a 10-place grid penalty for next Japanese Grand Prix after picking up their third reprimand of the season in Korea.

In post-race evaluation, the stewarding panel judge that the Marussia and Caterham drivers failed to slow sufficiently under yellow flags, having studied the relevant telemetry data supplied by the teams following Sunday’s race.

Adrian Sutil also visited the stewards’ office after the Grand Prix to discuss his Turn 3 collision with Red Bull’s Mark Webber, but the Force India driver escaped a penalty.

The FIA sporting regulations dictate any driver hit with three reprimands during a season be automatically hit with a 10-place grid penalty, provided at least two of the offences were driving-related.
