Max Chilton, Marussia, Brazilian GP 2013, Interlagos

Max Chilton and Esteban Gutierrez have been given reprimands for crossing the white line in the pitlane entry during final practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Marussia driver Chilton and Sauber man Gutierrez did not stay to the left of the white line in the pitlane entry as was defined in the event notes by the race director.

The reprimand was the first for Gutierrez and the second for Chilton this year.

Chilton's team has also been handed a 5000 euro fine for having released its cars in front of others while waiting in line at the start of the qualifying session.

The Briton qualified in 22nd place, behind team-mate Jules Bianchi.

A total of 12 drivers have been hit with official reprimands during the 2013 season.
