Sauber driver Kamui Kobayashi has been fined 25,000 Euro for his incident in the pits during the British Grand Prix. The Japanese driver missed his mark and slid into his pit crew injuring three. The injuries were labeled as ‘not serious’ but the incident did not go unnoticed by race stewards who issued a the fine for an “unsafe manoeuvre in the pits”. Kobayashi also felt bad about the moment:
“The accident was my fault and I want to apologise to the team,” said Kobayashi. “Of course I had to push hard for points, but without doubt I braked too late in the pitlane.
“The front wheels locked, I couldn’t control the car, and this is how I overshot the pit box. I am terribly sorry this happened, and I hope the three mechanics I hit get well soon.”
