Lotus Renault GP's misery in the Singapore Grand Prix was compounded on Sunday when the team was fined 7,500 Euros for giving Bruno Senna wrong instructions at a safety car restart.
The team endured its worst race weekend of the year, with Senna and Vitaly Petrov finishing in 15th and 17th position's respectively - and afterwards team principal Eric Boullier labelled its performance "embarrassing."
To add to the disappointment, Renault was also fined for having failed to inform Senna of his correct race position at the safety car restart following Michael Schumacher's accident.
Renault told Senna that he was battling with Sergio Perez ahead of him on the road, even though the Mexican was a lap ahead. That resulted in Senna trying to overtake his Sauber rival, with a move that resulted in the pair colliding.
A statement issued by the FIA said: "The team failed to inform the driver of his correct race position which led to an avoidable collision with car No. 17 Sergio Perez."
