GP2 Hungary: Coletti loses podium, Marciello loses race two pole

Stefano Coletti podium, GP2 Hungary

Two post-race penalties have totally rearranged the outcome of Saturday's Hungaroring GP2 race, with both of Racing Engineering's drivers affected.

Stefano Coletti has lost his second place finish after being found at fault for the collision with Julian Leal that removed the Colombian driver from the race on lap five.

He had 20 seconds added to his time, which drops him to the bottom of the top 20.

His team-mate Raffaele Marciello, who was due to start the sprint race from pole position after finishing the feature race in eighth, was found guilty of passing Stoffel Vandoorne under the safety car.

He too was given a 20-second penalty, and will start behind Coletti.

Marciello explained: "When I entered the pits, I had Vandoorne next to me, who all of the sudden slowed down in front of the safety car line, which caused me to pass him unintentionally.

"This means I was handed a post-race penalty and instead of starting from pole position I will be at the back of the field."

Adrian Quaife-Hobbs and Takuya Izawa are promoted to second and third, with Nathanael Berthon taking Marciello's sprint race pole.
