Grosjean gets penalized 10 grid positions

Romain Grosjean

GP2 championship leader Romain Grosjean will start ten places further back from where he qualifies for the next round of the championship at Silverstone.

The ten-place penalty was applied after Sunday’s Sprint Race in Valencia, with the Frenchman being adjudged to have caused an avoidable accident.

At the start, the DAMS pilot – Saturday's winner – was involved in contact with Sam Bird before spinning and being hit by both Rodolfo González and Charles Pic.

Heading to Great Britain, Franco-Swiss Grosjean holds a one-point lead over The Netherlands’ Giedo van der Garde, with the top five drivers covered by just ten points.
