Sergio Pérez is fined by the stewards at the Austrian GP
Perez will start this Saturday’s sprint race at the Red Bull Ring from 13th position with the aim of advancing positions after Friday’s penalty and placing himself in a good starting place for Sunday’s grand prix.
Sergio Perez finished Friday of the Austrian Grand Prix with a penalty for exceeding track limits during Q2 of the qualifying session, losing fourth place in Q3 and starting 13th today in the sprint race.
Now, the Mexican driver was again the protagonist of a decision of the sports commissioners of the Austrian race, although without important consequences for the development of the weekend.
Perez was recorded violating the maximum speed of the pitlane of the Red Bull circuit, whose limit is 80km / h, during the second free practice that took place this Saturday.
According to reports, the Red Bull driver drove at 82.1km/h at 13:26 local time, which means that the infringement took place in the final minutes of the second practice.
