Norbert Michelisz handed penalty for start incident with Attila Tassi

Norbert Michelisz has been penalised for the start incident in Race 2 of the Pau-Ville WTCR premiere.

The Hyundai driver started from the reversed grid pole position but got a slow getaway.

As he was moving over to cover his position, he made contact with Honda driver Tassi, resulting in a retirement for Michelisz while the Hungarian rival dropped down to finish 13th.

Michelisz has been handed a six-place grid drop for the coming race at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, as well as three penalty points.
