Perez disqualified from feature race
Mexican to start sprint race from back
Sergio Perez has been disqualified from today’s feature race in Istanbul after his car was discovered to be underweight in post race scrutineering.
The Mexican, who battled Davide Valsecchi throughout the race and was second after his pitstop before fading in closing laps to fourth place, will have his result nullified and will now line up at the rear of the grid for tomorrow morning’s sprint race.
The disqualification means that teammate Giedo van der Garde moves up to fourth place in the results, with Luiz Razia in fifth, Michael Herck up to sixth, Christian Vietoris to seventh and teammate Dani Clos picking up the final points position for eighth place, along with the reverse pole position tomorrow.
