Rosberg reprimanded for Pérez incident
4 April 2014 – Nico Rosberg has been reprimanded by the stewards following an incident with Sergio Pérez during the second practice session ahead of this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix.
Rosberg was completing a slow lap early on in the session and jinked into the path of the rapidly approaching Force India driver, causing Pérez to take evasive action.
The stewards, which include former Formula 1 driver Derek Warwick, deemed that Rosberg 'slowed unnecessarily and recklessly in front of car 11 [Pérez] between Turns 13 and 14.'
The reprimand is Rosberg's first of the season; drivers are allowed three reprimands before they are demoted 10 places on the grid.
