Caterham Team AirAsia driver loses ten grid placesDavide Valsecchi penalised

Davide Valsecchi will be dropped ten grid places in tomorrow’s feature race at Spa-Francorchamps after it was found that the Italian had set his fastest sector time during today’s qualifying session when the yellow flags were displayed.

The Caterham Team AirAsia driver was fighting to find some extra pace in the final stages of the thirty minute session when Charles Pic stopped on the track in the third sector. Having failed to slow down sufficiently, Valsecchi was handed a ten grid place position penalty for tomorrow’s feature race. He initially qualified P21 and will now start from last.
