Norris receives three penalty positions and Pérez advances one place

Norris, who had qualified sixth this Saturday in Baku, came under investigation after Q1 of the qualifying session because he did not enter the pits when the red flag went out caused by a car accident. Antonio Giovinazzi.

The red flag communication appeared just as Norris was about to enter the pitlane, at which point the British driver received the notification to enter, but felt it was too late to comply at that time.

Norris had to go one more lap around the Baku before entering the pits under a red flag, which caught the attention of the stewards of the SON.

The FIA ​​took into account the testimony of Norris and McLaren that the driver could not enter the pits at the time, but chose to impose a three-place penalty on him anyway, in addition to a three-point penalty on his license.

“The stewards listened to the driver of car 4 (Lando Norris) and the team representatives and reviewed the video and the timing tests,” says the FIA ​​statement.

Also read:

“NOR was just down the long start and finish straight when the red flags were displayed. As a result, the red lights flashed on a left guardrail panel and on the dash of the car.”

“During the hearing, the pilot admitted that he took his foot off the gas, braked and engaged and was able to get into the pitlane. At the time he was not sure what to do and asked his team on the radio.”

“Although the team immediately ordered him into the pits, it was too late and NOR crossed the finish line once more. The stewards assume that if a red flag is not respected during qualifying, a five-place drop in the qualifying is appropriate. Grill”.

“However, if you consider that the driver only had a very short time to react due to his position on the track, a three-position drop on the grid is sufficient as an exception.”

This means that Norris will start Sunday’s race from ninth position, raising to Sergio perez to the sixth, to Yuki Tsunoda to the seventh already Fernando Alonso to the eighth.

The addition of three penalty points to Norris’s license means that he has now accumulated eight points in a 12-month period and will be banned from a race if he reaches 12 points.
