SHANGHAI, China - Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado and Spaniard Pedro de la Rosa have been reprimanded by Formula 1 stewards for impeding rivals during qualifying for the 2012 Chinese GP.

Maldonado was ruled to have got in the way of Caterham's Heikki Kovalainen, who had expected the Williams driver to be penalised.


"He was weaving on the back straight and I was getting very close to him, so obviously he had no intention of letting me by," the Finn complained.

HRT's De la Rosa held up Maldonado's Brazilian team mate Bruno Senna in the first phase of the session.
