GP Azerbaijan 2021: 3-place penalty on Norris

Lando Norris was sentenced to three places in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix after the McLaren driver was found to have violated the red flag regulations.

More specifically, as soon as the red flags came out due to the accident of Antonio Giovinazzi in Q1 of the qualifiers, Norris was a short distance from the entrance of the pitlane and the British driver was invited by his team to enter the pits. However, the driver felt it was too late to slow down to get into the pits.

Norris then took to the streets of Baku before finally entering the red-flagged pits. The FIA ‚Äč‚Äčlistened to Norris and McLaren, but ruled that he should be given a three-place penalty, along with three penalty points in his super license.

That means Norris will start Sunday’s race in ninth place, putting Sergio Perez in sixth, Yuki Tsunoda in seventh and Fernando Alonso in eighth. Adding three penalty points to Norris leave means he has accumulated eight points in a 12-month period, and completing 12 points will result in a dismissal for a match.
