Charity work penalty for Spengler after Hockenheim collision

Robert Wickens was also penalized for a separate incident.

The result of the DTM race at Hockenheim was amended after the race. The stewards of the meeting gave Robert Wickens a 30 seconds’ time penalty as a substitute for a drive-through penalty.

The Mercedes-Benz driver got the penalty for causing a collision with Augusto Farfus (BMW). As a result, Wickens drops back from eighth to 17th place. Due to this decision, the Canadian loses valuable points and drops back from ninth to twelfth place in the final drivers’ standings.

Bruno Spengler was also penalized by the stewards of the meeting after the race. After a collision with Daniel Juncadella, the Canadian deliberately had braked so hard that the Spaniard couldn’t avoid a collision. For this unsporting behaviour, Spengler has to do three hours of charitable work, to be carried out in consultation with the DMSB.
