Senna believes di Resta deserved a penalty

By on Sunday, September 9, 2012

Williams driver Bruno Senna believes that Paul di Resta deserved sanctioning for contact during the Italian Grand Prix.

Senna was attacking di Resta at the second chicane for tenth place, when di Resta moved across on the Brazilian, sending him off the circuit.

Upon rejoining the circuit, Senna lost a position to Mark Webber.

"It was pretty clear", Senna toldAutosport.com. "I had the front wing of my car next to his car and then of course the tyre under braking and he squeezed me off the track."

"We touched. Fortunately, we didn't launch each other but for me a driver has been banned for a race for doing something similar and even Vettel got a drive-through penalty for squeezing Fernando off the track."

"It's a stewards' decision, so we'll respect it, but I don't think that what Paul did was right. It's racing and sometimes we make errors in judgement but it's up to the stewards to decide."

The stewards did not penalise either driver for the incident. di Resta went on to finish in eighth, two places ahead of Senna.
