Grid penalties imposed on Bottas, Ricciardo


Valtteri Bottas and Daniel Ricciardo have both received grid penalties for the Formula One Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos on Sunday.

Williams driver Bottas was given a three-place penalty for overtaking under red flag conditions during the second free practice session on Friday.

The 26-year-old Finn was deemed to have not done enough to avoid passing Felipe Nasr of Sauber between turns five and six, the session having been halted due to the McLaren of Fernando Alonso suffering an engine failure.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo will lose 10 places on the grid for the race on Sunday after his team opted to use an upgraded Renault engine in the Australian's car. 

Nico Rosberg was fastest in FP2 ahead of Mercedes team-mate and drivers' champion Lewis Hamilton.
