F1 Fanatic - GP3
Frightening crash for Patrick Kujala at Becketts during the first race after hitting David Fumanelli:
Since when was Cecotto a member of the Red Bull young driver program…?
In seriousness though, that move by Sainz is the sort of thing the GP3 stewards should come down hard on. He’ll probably just get a reprimand, though. Hope I’m wrong….
I have to say the slow motion replay of the crash was excellent, I’m glad to see he’s alright though.
Following that crash, Kujala’s suspended from race 2 for an “extremely serious breach of the Regulations which had the potential to cause injury to others”, and gets a lie-in tomorrow morning.
It’s a 10-place grid penalty for Sainz – if you ask me, he can count himself lucky.
The penalty is probably a little harsh, since it was just a simple misjudgment on Kujala’s part, but it did happen at one of the fastest parts of a very fast circuit, and he’s looked out of his depth since the start if the season. I’m not sure what Koiranen were thinking, plucking him from (relative) obscurity like that.
