Vitaly Petrov has been handed a five-place grid penalty, plus a reprimand, for his part in a collision with Michael Schumacher in the Korean Grand Prix.
The Renault driver was in a slipstream battle with Fernando Alonso down the long straight into Turn 3 following the first round of pit stops on lap 16, which resulted in the pair arriving the corner too fast. While Alonso was able to take avoiding action to steer around slow cars ahead of them, Petrov had nowhere to go and slid into the back of Schumacher, putting both cars out of the grand prix.
Petrov was called to see the stewards after the race and, following an investigation, it was decided that he would be handed a five-place grid penalty for the Indian GP as well as a reprimand.
It was revealed earlier in the weekend that from this weekend's race in Korea, stewards would reserve the right to add a reprimand on top of penalties under the totaling-up system, so serial offenders run the risk of facing further sanctions.
