Caterham duo Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde and Marussia pair Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton have been reprimanded by race stewards, after an incident packed Korean GP.

Bianchi and Pic were reprimanded for failing to respond to yellow flags, while Van der Garde and Chilton were reprimanded for lapping too quickly while the Safety Car was out on track.

Bianchi and Pic now face compulsory ten place grid penalties in Japan next Sunday, as both have collected three reprimands so far this season.

The stewards decided to take no action against either McLaren’s Sergio Perez or Force India’s Adrian Sutil, who were also the subject of investigations for incidents they were involved in during the race.

Perez was investigated on suspicion of forcing Force India’s Paul di Resta off track as well as for a tangle with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, in a separate incident.

Sutil was also investigated for his role in a collision with Mark Webber which caused the Red Bull driver to retire from the race. (GP247)
