Maldonado handed 10-place penaltyComment on this story
Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium – Venezuelan Formula One driver Pastor Maldonado will have a 10 place penalty on the starting grid for next weekend's Italian Grand Prix after making a false start and then causing a collision on Sunday.
The Williams driver has collected more sanctions than any other driver this season and started Sunday's race at Spa with a three-place penalty for impeding Nico Hulkenberg's Force India in qualifying.
Race stewards said in two statements that they had handed the Venezuelan a five-place sanction for his next race for jumping the start and a further five places for causing a collision during the race, which he failed to finish. – Reuters
