Gasly escapes race ban after Brazil infringement

Pierre Gasly has escaped punishment after facing the stewards for a Brazil F1 Sprint race incident.

Pierre Gasly will not face a race ban after escaping punishment for an incident during the Brazil Sprint race. The AlphaTauri driver was summoned to the stewards for 'driving unnecessarily slowly' on the Reconnaissance Lap before the Brazil Sprint. After hearing from the driver, the stewards decided to issue Gasly with a warning. This means that Gasly remains on ten superlicence penalty points, but still walks a tightrope for the few Grands Prix. If he accumulates 12 penalty points in a twelve-month period, he will be forced to sit out a race.
