The Italian and the Indian both were handed penalties after yesterday’s sprint race
Luca Filippi did not have the chance to savour his podium finish for very long: the Trust Team Arden driver was handed a 25 second penalty when it was shown that he had caused a collision with Romain Grosjean who then failed to finish the race.
Consequently, Jérôme d’Ambrosio finishes second in the Valencia sprint race and Championship leader Giorgio Pantano completes the podium. Kamui Kobayashi, who had finished 7th, now gets the point of the 6th place.
Along with the Italian, Karun Chandhok was also penalised and receives a ten grid place penalty for Spa-Francorchamps, the next GP2 2008 event, after he caused a collision with Vitaly Petrov, who also failed to finish the race.
