Carlos Sainz Jnr, McLaren, Istanbul Park, 2020

Carlos Sainz Jnr has been given a three-place grid penalty for impeding Sergio Perez.

The stewards ruled McLaren had warned Sainz that Perez was behind him as he left the pits, but failed to make way for the Racing Point driver quickly enough.

“Car 55 was exiting the pits as Car 11 passed through turn 1. Car 11 caught up to Car 55 in turn 2/3 and was unnecessarily impeded by Car 55 at that point and through several subsequent turns.

“While extraordinary track conditions clearly impacted the situation, radio communications from the team clearly warned Car 55 that Car 11 was behind him.”
