Boccolacci penalised for Kari collision
15 July 2017 – Trident's Dorian Boccolacci has been handed a five-second time penalty after being deemed responsible for causing a collision with Arden rival Niko Kari during GP3's first race at Silverstone.
While scrapping over fourth position, Boccolacci and Kari made contact through Club corner, with the Red Bull junior running wide, dropping behind Jack Aitken in the process.
Aitken went on to overhaul Boccolacci for fourth place, while Kari followed the pair home in sixth position.
However, stewards later deemed Boccolacci responsible for causing the contact, and he drops to eighth as a result of his time penalty, meaning he will start Sunday's reversed-grid race from pole position.
Boccolacci's sanction promotes Kari, Arjun Maini and Giuliano Alesi into fifth, sixth and seventh respectively.
Elsewhere, Bruno Baptista was judged to have transgressed during the Virtual Safety Car phase and was handed a 20-second time penalty, demoting him from 12th to 15th place.
