Seven GP2 drivers penalised for early DRS use
The GP2 Series has confirmed penalties for seven drivers in the aftermath of the sprint race at Spa-Francorchamps.
The seven drivers in question were Jordan King, Alex Lynn, Daniel de Jong, Sergey Sirotkin, Arthur Pic and Arden duo Nabil Jeffri and Jimmy Eriksson.
All seven had 10 seconds added to their overall time for using their DRS on the opening lap of the race.
Lynn and King were the only two among those penalised to initially finish in the points, having taken the chequered flag in sixth and seventh respectively.
Both have been demoted out of the top eight as a result, with Sergio Canamasas and King's teammate Norman Nato picking up P7 and P8.
For title contender Sirotkin, it was his second time penalty in Sunday's race, as he had previously earned an additional 10 seconds in contact with Artem Markelov on the final lap.
Sirotkin had finished ninth on the road, but is now classified as 16th.
