GP2 Pantano excluded .....

Zuber disqualified

The  championship  leader  excluded  from  the  Spa-Francorchamps  event. 

Andreas  Zuber disqualified from Race 1.

Giorgio  Pantano  was  excluded  from  the  Spa-Francorchamps  event  after  the  stewards  have considered  that  he  caused  a  collision  with  Lucas  di  Grassi  on  the  last  lap  through  “reckless driving and unsportsmanlike behaviour” which ended the Campos man’s participation in the race.

In addition, in a separate incident, it was shown that Pantano overtook whilst the safety car was deployed. As  a  consequence,  it  has  been  decided  that  the  Racing  Engineering  driver  was  excluded  from this Event, including classification in Race 1.

Andreas Zuber was disqualified after Race 1 when unauthorised repairs to his Piquet Sports car were noted. Third place thus goes to his teammate Pastor Maldonado, and Jérôme d’Ambrosio will start from the reversed-grid pole position in today’s sprint race while Zuber will start last.
