Caterham driver Vitaly Petrov is now €1,000 lighter after being hit with a speeding fine by the FIA Stewards at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
The Russian was clocked exceeding the pit lane speed limit during Saturday’s final practice session by 4.8km/h, a breach of Article 30.12 of the Formula 1 Sporting Regulations.
The infringement will have no bearing on his qualifying result. Petrov will start Sunday’s 70-lap Hungarian Grand Prix from 20th position, sharing the tenth row of the grid with team-mate Heikki Kovalainen.
