Hitech Grand Prix driver Luca Ghiotto has been penalised following today’s Qualifying session at the Bahrain International Circuit.

Summoned by the Stewards to look at an incident between him and Louis Delétraz during the session, the Italian admitted that he did not see the Charouz driver approaching, and therefore he impeded the Swiss driver at the exit of Turn 4. Ghiotto apologised for his mistake.

He has been handed a three place grid drop for tomorrow’s Feature Race. Ghiotto had qualified P20 and will now start from 21st.
