FRECA | Red Bull Ring Race 2: Penalties Applied, Saucy Wins But MP Appeals

As anticipated here, after the investigations made by the stewards the results of Race 2 have changed. 16 cars were penalized in total. The reiterated disrespect of the track limits was the reason for 12 of the total amount of penalties. The amended result and standings were released although MP Motorsport is willing to appeal the decision.

Apart from Arden's William Alatalo (FIN) and Prema's Dino Beganovic (SWE) who have received 10 seconds for overtaking under yellow flags, and KIC's Gianluca Petecof (BRA), FA's Andrea Rosso (ITA) who have received a 25 seconds' penalty (the cause of those penalty is not specified), all the other drivers have been penalized for those track limits. 5 seconds were given to R-ace's Isack Hadjar (FRA), Arden's Nicola Marinangeli (ITA), KIC's Nico Göhler (GER) and to G4's Axel Gnos (SWI). 10 seconds instead were given to MP's Franco Colapinto (ARG), Arden's Alex Quinn (UK), ART's Gabriele Minì (ITA), Van Amersfoort's Mari Boya (SPA), MP's Oliver Goethe (DAN) and to all JD's Ido Cohen (ISR), Dudú Barrichello (BRA) & Tommy Smith (AUS).

Colapinto is therefore stripped off the victory. ART's Grégoire Saucy (SWI) is now the winner. Hadjar went from P5 to P6, Beganovic from P6 to P11, Alatalo from P8 to P15, Minì from P11 to P12, Boya from P12 to P14, Cohen from P15 to P19 & Smith from P26 to P27, Petecof from P16 to P28, Rosso from P18 to P29. Quinn, Marinangeli, Göhler and Gnos actually gained one place even though receiving the 5 seconds and ended eighth, twenty-first, twenty-second and twenty-fourth respectively.

Below you can find the updated standings with Saucy 77 points clear of the rest of the field. Colapinto could have been P8 and it is really buzzing to see the two rookies Hadjar & Minì tied on points:
