Nyck de Vries escapes punishment and retains ninth place during F1 debut

After the GP of Italy, the stewards reprimanded Nyck de Vries. The Dutchman escapes a more severe penalty and is allowed to keep his ninth place and first F1 points.

Nyck de Vries was investigated because he braked heavily between the second and third turns while the safety car was on track and he was closely followed by car number 24. The stewards checked with the driver, the team and also studied the telemetry data from Nick de Vries.

According to Nyck de Vries, according to his display, there was a risk that he would go below the delta time necessary during the VSC period. At the same time, Nyck de Vries also had braking problems about which he was in contact with the team. As a result, he did not receive any advice from the team about the delta time.

When making their decision, the stewards took into account the fact that Nyck de Vries was called up very late to replace Alex Albon. That is why they decided to reprimand de Vries instead of a greater punishment. Nyck de Vries therefore retains his ninth place and two World Cup points.
