Nico Rosberg has been given his first reprimand of the season for a pit entry breach during practice for the Spanish Grand Prix.

The Mercedes driver returned to the pits to the left of the entry bollard in Friday’s morning’s session, which went against the pre-event notes.

Having received a report from Race Director Charlie Whiting, spoken to Rosberg and examined video footage, the stewards opted to issue a reprimand.

“The driver crossed the line separating the pit entry from the track and did not stay to the right of the bollard, as required in the Race Director’s Event Notes (item 6.2),” read a brief note from the stewards.

A driver who receives three reprimands during a season will be given a 10-place grid penalty for the current or next event, providing two or more were for driving infringements.
