Webber demoted to 11th after time penalty

2012 Singapore Grand Prix

Mark Webber, Red Bull, Marina Bay, 2012Mark Webber has lost the point he scored in the Singapore Grand Prix after being handed a penalty.

The stewards gave the Red Bull driver a 20-second time penalty after going off the track while overtaking Kamui Kobayashi.

Webber was given a drive-through penalty which, because it is applied after the race, becomes a 20-second penalty.

Webber’s penalty promotes Kobayashi’s team mate Sergio Perez to tenth place and the final championship point.

The stewards’ report said: “Notwithstanding that the distance by which car two left the circuit was minimal, advantage was gained hence a breach did in fact occur.

“Such a breach has consistently attracted a drive-through penalty.”
