Néstor Girolami and Nathanaël Berthon added to Hungaroring penalty list

Following the panel-bashing action of the second World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) race, Néstor Girolami and Nathanaël Berthon have been added to the list of drivers given time penalties for their conduct.

Girolami’s offence came at turn two on the opening lap, when after running deep into the bend, he tagged the rear of Mikel Azcona’s CUPRA.

The two cars were pitched into a slide in front of the onrushing pack, resulting in further contact between the likes of Tiago Monteiro, Thed Björk and Luca Filippi, with neither Girolami nor Azcona finishing the race as a result of damage.

Girolami was subsequently handed two penalty points as well as a five-place grid drop for the next event.

Berthon, meanwhile, was awarded one penalty point on his license and a five-second time penalty, demoting him from fifth position to twelfth in the official classification, following a collision with Bence Boldizs at turn five.

Tarquini was also penalised for contact with both Aurélien Comte and Thed Björk in the race, with the BRC driver given a post-race 30-second penalty in lieu of a drive-through, dropping him from tenth to 17th.
