LANDO NORRIS THREE PLACE GIRD PENALTY
The McLaren driver was penalized this Friday by a position penalty on the starting grid of the GP of Styria
Lando Norris has been handed a three-place grid penalty for the Styrian Grand Prix after overtaking another car under yellow flag conditions on Friday at the Red Bull Ring.
The yellow flags were brought out when Nicholas latifi pulled to the side of the road after Turn 4 during the opening practice session of the weekend.
Stewards state that the “onboard footage clearly shows that driver of Car 4 passed Car 10 while yellow light panels were clearly visible and yellow flags were shown”.

As a result, it has opted to drop Norris three-places from his starting position for Sunday’s grand prix.
Last weekend at the Red Bull Ring, Norris starred in qualifying and drove to a fourth place finish – however that was later changed to third following a grid penalty for Lewis Hamilton.
Norris secured his first career podium last weekend, setting the fastest lap on the final lap of the race to ensure the gap between himself and Hamilton was under five seconds, as the latter had been handed another penalty during the race.
