SHANGHAI, China - Red Bull's Mark Webber and Sauber's Esteban Gutierrez were handed grid penalties for the upcoming Bahrain Formula 1 GP (April 21) when Formula 1 stewards ruled they were to blame for collisions in the 2013 Chinese GP on Sunday (April 14).

Webber, who started from the pits lane then retired when a wheel came off his car after a collision with Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne, was handed a three-place drop from wherever he qualifies.

ADMITTING GUILT

Mexican rookie Gutierrez, who piled into the back of Adrian Sutil's Force India, was given a five-place penalty after admitting misjudging his closing speed.

Webber also accepted he had made a mistake, telling the stewards that he had believed Vergne would give him sufficient room to pass rather than sticking to the normal line through the corner.
