H???lkenberg eighth after Sutil penalty

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Adrian Sutil has been given a 20-second penalty by the stewards of the Singapore Grand Prix for going off the track and gaining an advantage during the race.

Although the stewards said Sutil cut turn seven on the first lap of the race, the penalty wasn’t given until after the race had finished.

The penalty drops Sutil from eighth to tenth and promotes Nico H???lkenberg and Felipe Massa one place each in the final standings.

It means Force India fall behind Williams in the constructors’ championship.

It also means Sutil fails to overtake Michael Schumacher in the drivers’ championship.
