Caterham’s Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde and Marussia’s Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton have all been reprimanded by race stewards in Korea.

Bianchi and Pic received their reprimands for failing to respond to yellow flags, whilst Van der Garde and Chilton were punished for lapping too quickly during the safety-car period.

Bianchi and Pic now face automatic 10-place grid penalties at the next round in Japan, as both have accrued three reprimands this season.

Meanwhile, the stewards opted to take no further action against either McLaren’s Sergio Perez or Force India’s Adrian Sutil, who were also the subject of post-race investigations.

Perez had been placed under investigation on suspicion of forcing Force India’s Paul di Resta off track and for a separate tangle with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, whilst Sutil was investigated over his collision with Mark Webber which led to the Red Bull driver retiring from the race.
