Audi's Adrien Tambay has been handed a 30-second post race penalty for his part in the Pascal Wehrlein clash earlier at today's Norisring DTM race.

Tambay attempted a more than ambitious manoeuvre, going into infamously tight Grundig-hairpin, which sent his RS5 careering hard into left side of Wehrlein's C-Coupe.

The Frenchman did drop a position on circuit to his charging teammate Edoardo Mortara but lost little overall time from the incident.

Wehrlein's race was slightly the more compromised but the German also recovered in decent time.

As a result of the ruling Tambay drops down the order to ninth elevating Wehrlein to fifth while championship leader Marco Wittmann also benefits by moving up to sixth.

BMW duo of Martin Tomczyk and Antonio Felix da Costa also felt the wrath of the steward's rulebook with Tomczyk receiving a three-grid place penalty in Moscow for his contact with Gary Paffett on lap 58 while da Costa inherited a 30-second increase in race time for failing to slow enough under yellow flags.

Their penalties had no impact on the final result, as Tomczyk was already out of the running while Da Costa was already out of contention.
