Penalties follow Euro GP carnage

TO START DOWN THE ORDER: On-track shenanigans at the 2012 European GP will see Toro Rosso driver Jean-Eric Vergne slapped with a grid penalty and a massive fine.

VALENCIA, Spain - Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi and Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne were handed grid penalties for July's British Formula 1 Grand Prix at Silverstone after causing collisions on Sunday.

Japanese Kobayashi was given a five-place penalty for tangling with Ferrari's Felipe Massa at the European Grand Prix in Valencia won by the Brazilian's Spanish team mate Fernando Alonso.


French rookie Vergne will take a 10-place demotion on the starting grid at the next race and was also fined 25 000 euros (R264 000) for banging into the Caterham of Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen.

Both cars suffered punctures in that incident, with Vergne nursing the Toro Rosso back to the pits with the damaged rear tyre flailing around and spreading debris across the track.

The safety car then had to be deployed to enable marshals to clear the track.
