On top of that, Urrutia has now been handed a grid penalty for the next round of the season in Austria for his involvement in the incident that at Les Combes that saw Tom Coronel and Stian Paulsen go off.

The penalty will see Urrutia drop five places on the grid for the opening race at the Red Bull Ring.
