Maldonado given Chinese GP grid penalty

Pastor Maldonado has been handed a five-place penalty for the Chinese Grand Prix for causing a collision with Esteban Gutierrez. The Lotus driver exited the pits as Gutierrez was heading into turn one. An attempt to dive down the inside of the Sauber launched the car into the air where it rolled over, bringing out the safety car. Maldonado was handed a ten-second stop/go penalty during the race, but because of the severity of the incident, the stewards also handed down the grid penalty as well as three penalty points. Jules Bianchi was also given two penalty points for his contact with Adrian Sutil - an incident which left both cars with punctures.
