The FIA have handed both Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez penalty points on their Super Licence’s, after their incidents during todays Malaysian Grand Prix.
The Force India drivers made contact with Red Bull’s Daniil Kvyat and Lotus’ Romain Grosjean, with the first incident happening 20 laps or so into the race between Kvyat and Hulkenberg when the German clipped the back of the Red Bull driver, as he attempted to overtake the Force India on the inside of turn two.
The second meanwhile occurred 31 laps into the race between Perez and Grosjean, with the Force India clipping the rear wheel of the Lotus and sending him into a rather controlled spin to the outside of the circuit.
Whilst no cars were seriously damaged in the incidents, it still lost both Kvyat and Grosjean time on track. As a result Hulkenberg has been given two penalty points on his license along with Perez, who has now totted up four points over his 12-month period despite the FIA saying he has three as pointed by F1Fanatic on Twitter.
