BBC Sport - Illegal pass earns Vettel penalty at Canadian Grand Prix
Vettel penalised for red-flag pass
- From the section Formula 1
Sebastian Vettel is handed a five-place grid penalty at the Canadian Grand Prix for illegally overtaking another car under red-flag conditions.
Vettel passed Manor-Marussia's Roberto Merhi while red flags were out on track following Felipe Nasr's heavy crash in free practice three, an act forbidden in all forms of motorsport.
The penalty completed a bad day for Vettel, who was only 16th fastest in qualifying following a hybrid system failure in his Ferrari.
