Post-race fines for Maldonado and Kobayashi 08 Jul 2012
Williams Pastor Maldonado and Saubers Kamui Kobayashi both picked up post-race fines from the British Grand Prix stewards thanks to driving indiscretions during Sundays Silverstone race.
Maldonado was adjudged to have caused his collision with Sergio Perez, which led to the Sauber drivers retirement, and due to the seriousness of the incident received a double penalty in the form of a reprimand and a 10,000 euro fine.
Kobayashi overshot his pit box during a stop, knocking over three Sauber mechanics. Thankfully none was seriously injured, but stewards fined the Japanese driver 25,000 euro for a very dangerous manoeuvre which had potentially serious implications.
Maldonado finished the race 16th, while Kobayashi was 11th.
