Posted On: 17 Aug 2007 - 15:19
Courtesy of The WPPA has issued yellow cards to Abdullah Al-Sulaiti and Luca Nicolini, Qatar 95, for their part in the first corner incident during the Scandinavian Grand Prix, which saw Jotuns's, Jorn Tandberg and Christian Zaborowski crash out.

"Drivers were warned at the pre race briefing to pay particular attention from the green/start flag and the run to, and into the first corner," said WPPA Chief Commissioner, Rory Power. "We looked at the TV footage to evaluate the situation, and it is clear that boat 95 made a severe change in direction, turning in from the outside, but without paying attention to the boat on their inside and compromising their position."

The WPPA also deemed it necessary to issue a reprimand to Tandberg and Zaborowski for their part, failing to pay due attention to the position of Qatar 95.
