Vettel was reprimanded over his contact with Bruno Senna

Defending World Champion Sebastian Vettel has been issued with a formal warning over his on-track conduct after he made contact with Bruno Senna during the opening practice session for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Following Senna’s Williams under braking for the final chicane, Vettel deliberately missed his braking point and shortcut the complex in order to get ahead of the Brazilian to start his next flying lap with a clear track ahead of him.

In doing so, however, Senna was forced wide by Vettel, and his car was hit by the German.

Both were summoned to the FIA Stewards’ offices after the session, with the panel – which includes former Grand Prix driver Martin Donnelly on its roster – electing to issue Vettel with a reprimand for his troubles.

Great deals for the 2012 Singapore Grand Prix!
