Spengler penalized for Wickens clash in DTM race

By

DTM champion Bruno Spengler has picked up a grid penalty for the next round at Zandvoort after tangling with Robert Wickens at Oschersleben.

The pair tangled in the closing stages of this weekend’s race as they fought for 12th. Both had to retire as a result, ending Spengler’s hopes of successfully defending his title.

The stewards ruled that the Canadian was at fault in the collision and will demote him two places on the Zandvoort grid when the series resumes in two weeks.
