Villa dropped by five grid positions
on the starting grid for Donington’s Race 1
Proteam Racing’s Javier Villa will be dropped by five positions on the starting grid for Donington’s Race 1, because of the penalty that the Panel of the Stewards imposed to the Spanish youngster for having caused the incident that eliminated Fredy Barth and Aleksei Dudukalo during the first race in Porto.
Villa received an additional penalty of 10-grid positions that will remain suspended for the events in the UK and Germany.
Other drivers under threat of suspended penalties of 10-grid positions are Norbert Michelisz and Mehdi Bennani. The former following the accident at the start of Budapest’s Race 2 (the penalty is suspended until Donington), the latter because of his collision with Stefano D’Aste at the end of Race 2 in Porto (the penalty will remain suspended until Valencia).
