Italian driver’s eighth place expunged for technical infringement
Following today’s FIA Formula 2 Championship Feature race at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, Italy, Antonio Fuoco was found to have used a non-compliant throttle map at the race start.
As this was determined to be in breach of Technical Bulletin BT 18 008, Fuoco was disqualified from the race results, in which he finished eighth. He will be allowed to begin tomorrow’s race from the back of the field.
Fuoco also received a five-second time penalty to his final race time prior to his disqualification, having been found to have exceeded track limits during the course of the race.
Thanks to the penalty, Luca Ghiotto has been elevated into the points while Ralph Boschung will now begin tomorrow’s Sprint Race from pole position.
