Following the conclusion of the Yas Marina Sprint Race, Campos Racing’s Kush Maini has been handed a five-second time penalty.

On the opening lap of the race, the Campos made contact with the Van Amersfoort Racing #23 car of Juan Manuel Correa at Turn 3. The incident led to damage for the #6 ART Grand Prix car of Victor Martins and a spin and retirement from the race for Correa.

Following the examination of evidence and after hearing from the drivers involved, Stewards determined that Maini was wholly responsible for the collision.

The Stewards also noted that due to the mitigating circumstances associated with an incident on the opening lap of the race, and with it being a small error, they elected to assign a five-second penalty rather than the normal 10-seconds.

The penalty drops Maini from 11th in the provisional classification to 13th position. It also promotes Trident’s Roman Stanek and Hitech Pulse-Eight driver Jak Crawford up one position each to 11th and 12th respectively.
