Bottas takes pole as Bianchi gets penalised
13 June 2009 – Jules Bianchi has been placed five places down the grid for blocking his fellow racing drivers in the Audi-S chicane at Zandvoort. Bianchi therefore hands his pole position to team-mate Valtteri Bottas, while Mika Maki moves up to second on the grid.
ART Grand Prix driver Jules Bianchi did well in qualifying. The Frenchman dominated in qualifying but after qualifying came to an end at least four drivers filed a complaint to the race stewards as they felt being blocked by Bianchi at the chicane.
Bianchi now hands his pole position to team-mate Bottas.
