Pierre Gasly Saved From Ban Risk After Imola GP Cancellation

In the wake of the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix due to severe weather conditions. Formula 1 driver Pierre Gasly finds himself fortunate as the non-event spares him from potential consequences. Gasly was on the brink of facing a race ban with just days to spare before two penalty points were set to drop from his super licence.

Gasly had been carrying 10 penalty points since the Mexico City Grand Prix in October last year but managed to navigate subsequent races without incurring any further penalties. The Frenchman successfully handled the demanding schedule that included back-to-back races in Azerbaijan and Miami, with the added risk of the Baku City Circuit hosting the first Sprint weekend of the season.

His penalty point tally began at the Spanish Grand Prix in 2022 while driving for AlphaTauri. As per regulations. A total of 12 points accumulated within a rolling 12-month period would have triggered a race suspension for Gasly. However, the cancellation of the Imola race. Which would have taken place on May 21, coincides with the expiration of two penalty points on May 22. This reduction in his points reduces the likelihood of facing a race ban at this juncture.

Pierre Gasly can now focus on the upcoming races with a sense of relief. Knowing that the next three points on his license will not be removed until July 10. The unexpected turn of events provides him with some respite from the potential jeopardy that his super licence had posed.

While the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix allowed Formula 1 to acknowledge the serious impact of the extreme weather on the Imola region, with lives and possessions lost due to floods and landslides. Gasly’s relief must not overshadow the gravity of the situation. The motorsport community stands in solidarity with the affected area as they continue to battle the force of nature and work towards recovery.
