Pantano excluded from this event, Zuber disqualified

The championship leader excluded from the Spa-Francorchamps event. Andreas Zuber disqualified from Race 1.

Giorgio Pantano was excluded from the Spa-Francorchamps event after the stewards have considered that he caused a collision with Lucas di Grassi on the last lap through "reckless driving and unsportsmanlike behaviour" which ended the Campos man's participation in the race.

In addition, in a separate incident, it was shown that Pantano overtook whilst the safety car was deployed.

As a consequence, it has been decided that the Racing Engineering driver was excluded from this Event, including classification in Race 1.

Andreas Zuber was disqualified after Race 1 when unauthorised repairs to his Piquet Sports car were noted. Third place thus goes to his teammate Pastor Maldonado, and Jerome d'Ambrosio will start from the reversed-grid pole position in tomorrow's sprint race while Zuber will start last.
