Santino Ferrucci has been banned from the F2 races in Hungary and Belgium after deliberately crashing into his team-mate Arjun Maini after the Sprint Race at Silverstone.
Following the chequered flag, the Haas junior driver drove into the back of his Trident team-mate leading Maini to say on the radio “there is something wrong with my team-mates brain.”
The stewards at Silverstone heard testimony from the Trident team that Ferrucci driving into Maini was premeditated.
Ferrucci declined to attend the stewards hearing.
The American was also disqualified from the Sprint Race results at Silverstone for a separate incident when he forced Maini off the track.
Ferrucci was also found to have transitioned from the support race paddock to the race pitlane wearing just one glove and holding a mobile phone earning him a 6000 Euro fine.
