Gabriele Tarquini has been penalised with a five-place grid drop for the next round of the FIA World Touring Car Cup in Slovakia, following contact with Yann Ehrlacher in the second race at the Hungaroring.
Tarquini was adjudged to have caused a collision with the Lynk & Co 03 of Ehrlacher at Turn 1 in race two, as well as with Guerrieri at Turn 8.
Ehrlacher and Tarquini went on to retire from the race. Ehrlacher explained that the damage was to both the wheels on the right-side of his car.
“We had a really difficult race two,” said Ehrlacher. “I was pushed out and it broke the two wheels on the right side.
“I managed to bring the car back to the pits to give the opportunity to my mechanics to repair it for race three as we would start in a good position.”
The penalty will see the reigning champion lose five grid positions in the next race he participates in. The Italian has been given two penalty points for the incident.
