Tio Ellinas has been penalised with a drive through after the Feature Race in Austria.

The Cypriot driver was deemed to have forced Stefano Coletti off the Spielberg circuit at turn two during the Feature Race. The stewards have added 20 seconds to Ellinas’ race time which drops him from 18th to 23rd as a result.

Despite Conor Daly arguing that he was forced off the track by Jolyon Palmer at the same corner, the stewards decided there was not enough evidence to show that a misdemeanor was committed by the Briton.
