Julián Leal and Stéphane Richelmi have been handed penalties following the Feature Race in which Jolyon Palmer was crowned Champion.

The GP2 stewards decided that Carlin’s Julián Leal was at fault in a collision with MP Motorsport’s Marco Sørensen at turn 18. Leal has dropped one position in the race results from eighth to ninth which means Sørensen is classified in P8 and collects Sprint Race pole position.

Stéphane Richelmi was deemed to have left the circuit at turn three and gained an unfair advantage. The penalty the Monegasque received is an addition of 20 seconds on to his elapsed race time which demotes him to P22 in the classification.
