Grosjean banned for Italian Grand Prix

September 02, 2012 22:43 IST

French Formula One driver Romain Grosjean was handed a one-race ban and fined 50,000 euros for causing a first corner pile-up at the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday.

His Lotus team said they would not be appealing the penalty, which will mean Grosjean missing next weekend's Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

Belgian reserve Jerome D'Ambrosio is the likely replacement, although the team have yet to take a final decision.
