For his part in the first lap incident involving himself and Kevin Magnussen, Daniel Ricciardo has been penalised.
Due to his involvement in the accident with Kevin Magnussen at the beginning of the Brazilian Grand Prix, Daniel Ricciardo will lose three positions on the starting grid.
Halfway through the first lap of the race, the McLaren racer hit the inside of Magnussen’s car, spinning the Haas around.
After that, when Ricciardo tried to manoeuvre around the Haas that was moving backward, the two crashed, ending the race for both cars and bringing out the safety car.
The stewards admitted that Ricciardo was solely to responsible for the accident, which was completely due to his error of judgement rather than any act of carelessness.
As a consequence, Ricciardo’s qualifying result for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which will be his last race before at least a year away from the motorsport, will receive a three-place grid penalty.
Additionally, Ricciardo received two superlicense points, making his 12-month total to eight (out of a maximum of twelve).
