Pic gets penalty and community service for ignoring red flags
22 September, 2012
Sep.22 (Reuters) Marussia’s Charles Pic has picked up a 20-second time penalty for the Singapore Grand Prix after overtaking while red flags were out during the third free practice session on Saturday.
FIA stewards said in a statement that the French driver had overtaken another car after passing four red flags signalling that the session had been brought to an end.
The red flags came out after Caterham’s Vitaly Petrov hit a wall and broke its suspension.
The statement also said that Pic and his engineer had to perform a day’s community service for the FIA Action for Road Safety campaign.
