Gutierrez Penalised For Sutil Crash

Sauber’s Esteban Gutierrez has been handed a five-place grid penalty for next weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix.

The Mexican smashed straight into the rear of Adrian Sutil’s Force India in the early stages of the race when he out-braked himself. Gutierrez retired on the spot while Sutil limped back to the pitlane to see if his mechanics could help get him back out on track.

Yet, a broken rear wing, damaged under side and then a fire beside the right rear wheel saw the German call it a day for the second race in a row.

Eight other drivers have investigations on going, including Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber and Kimi Raikkonen, for using DRS under yellow flags which were out as a result of the crash.
