Felipe Nasr has been handed a grid penalty for the Feature Race by the GP2 stewards in Sochi.
In the first ten minutes of Qualifying at the Sochi Autodrom Felipe Nasr recklessly slowed down on the racing line at the final corner and blocked Stefano Coletti who was on a flying lap. The Racing Engineering driver suffered front wing damage and was forced to pit for repairs.
As a result of Nasr’s actions, he will drop three positions on the Feature Race grid and thus will start from P12.
Pierre Gasly’s five place grid penalty carried over from Italy means the Frenchman will line up 16th on the grid.
