SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium - Russian Daniil Kvyat collected his second reprimand of the F1 season, and Red Bull was fined $11 351, after an unsafe release from the pitslane during the Belgian Grand Prix practice on Friday (August 21).
A third reprimand in a season would trigger an automatic 10 place grid penalty for the driver.
Race stewards found that Kvyat's car was released as Williams' Brazilian Felipe Massa was approaching in second practice and the Russian also "did not pay sufficient attention".
Kvyat was previously reprimanded in Austria for another pitslane infringement.
