Santiago Urrutia gets penalty for incident with rival Audi of Magnus

Santiago Urrutia has been given a 30-second penalty for an incident with the Comtoyou Racing Audi of Gilles Magnus, which drops the Uruguayan out of the points.

The WRT driver had crossed the line in sixth, and had picked up key points for his championship bid, with him looking well-placed in third, but the penalty for an incident with Magnus at Eau Rouge has resulted in the Audi driver dropping from sixth to 25th.

Urrutia is now back to sixth in the championship hunt, 42 points behind new championship leader Julien Briché.
