The Rahal Letterman Lanigan team and Dragon Racing driver Sebastian Saavedra have been fined by IndyCar following last weekend's races at Detroit, while Will Power and Sebastien Bourdais get probation for their outbursts there.
RLL was penalized a total of $10,000 for technical violations discovered on James Jakes's car after qualifying for Saturday's race. The Briton's car was determined to be in breach of Rules 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, which dictate angles for the rear wing main plane and the height of the main plane trailing edge. The team was fined $5,000 for each violation.
Meanwhile, Saavedra's hand gestures toward Marco Andretti after the Colombian crashed out of the first race earned him a $30,000 fine for breaking Rule 184.108.40.206 (improper conduct), although he will have the opportunity to work the fine off by making public appearances for the series over the remainder of the season.
Will Power and Sebastien Bourdais were both put on probation for the remainder of the season for violating the same rule as Saavedra after their collision in race two. Power, who threw his gloves at Bourdais, was penalized for improper conduct toward a competitor, while Bourdais was punished for comments made toward an official on pit road.
The penalties may be appealed pursuant to the procedures and timelines detailed in the protest and appeal procedures of the IndyCar Series rulebook.
