Reprimands for Maldonado and de la Rosa


Pastor Maldonado and Pedro de la Rosa have both been reprimanded following separate incidents during today's qualifying session.

The Venezuelan was reprimanded for blocking Heikki Kovalainen on his first run, while the Spaniard was punished for impeding Bruno Senna shortly after.

"He was weaving on the back straight and I was getting very close to him, so obviously he had no intention of letting me by," Kovalainen told reporters at the end of the session." By the last corner I was right up his bum.

"It didn't cost us much time because I was able to do another lap later on," he continued, "but in any case he made a mistake and I think he'll probably have to pay for it."
