Korean Grand Prix; Stewards issue reprimand decisions

It was a mixed outcome for Pic's Caterham team mate Giedo van der Garde who escaped sanction over reports that the Caterham driver had gone too fast behind the safety car. The announcement stated: "The Stewards are satisfied, from a study of the telemetry, that the driver did slow on entering the yellow flag area.

However, van der Garde had already been handed a drive-thru during the race for forcing Marussia's Jules Bianchi outside the track limits in turn 1 on the opening lap, and he picked an additional reprimand for speeding behind the safety car. In van der Garde's case, this not not put him over the "three-strikes" threshold.

Bianchi's team mate Max Chilton was similarly reprimanded for not staying above the minimum time set by the FIA ECU. "The Stewards determined from the telemetry that the driver was clearly faster than permitted under the safety car," the announcement concluded. However, like van der Garde, Chilton is still below the three-strikes limit that would trigger a grid penalty.

I would have expected a penalty for Sutil for destroying Webbers race, for losing control of his car. This penalty would fall somewhere in the same category as giving Webber a penalty for being deaf to marshalls calls after the race had finished.....
