Carlos Sainz Disqualified From Monaco Qualifying For Missing Weighbridge

Carlos Sainz has been thrown out of Monaco Qualifying this afternoon, after missing the weighbridge during Q1.

The Toro Rosso driver who managed P8 in Q3 was called into the weigh bridge after completing his run in the first part of Qualifying for the routine checks, however he instead drove straight past the red light on entry to the pits and went straight back to his garage.

The stewards said this was in “breach of Article 26.1 of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations” and that “in accordance with Article 26.1 (iv) of the FIA Formula One Sporting regulations the driver is required to start from the pit lane.”
