Following an investigation by the race director in which it was concluded that Olivier Panis passed another driver under a yellow flag, a 25 second penalty has subsequently been added to his elapsed race time. As a result of this infringement Panis looses his 4th place position and is now classified 7th.

Craig Pollock, Managing Director and Team Principal
"I am extremely disappointed for the team and for Olivier. Losing 4th place in the first race of the season is a further blow for the British American Racing Honda Team. This will make us even more determined for the next race in Malaysia."
