This Is How Badly You Need To Drive To Get Disqualified From GP2

Sergio Canamasas caused several crashes during today's GP2 sprint race at Monza and was eventually disqualified

Remind me later

Sergio Canamasas is quickly building up a reputation for being GP2’s version of Pastor Maldonado. He was disqualified from today’s F1 Italian Grand Prix support race at Monza for causing several crashes.

On the opening lap, he ran into the gravel trap at the Ascari chicane. He sped through it like he was in a video game and rejoined the track in a very dangerous fashion, even hitting another car.

His corner-cutting caused several drivers to hit the brakes to avoid collecting him. With the field bunching up on the run to the Parabolica hairpin, this crash between Pierre Gasly and Artem Markelov was the result…

A few laps later, Canamasas ran into the back of Rene Binder at the second chicane, spinning the Arden International driver.

Canamasas then collided with Raffaele Marciello at the next corner, turning in on the Italian and causing both of them to run off track.

The race stewards decided to disqualify him before he caused more chaos.

It wasn’t his first exclusion from GP2. Back in 2012 in Singapore, he was disqualified for failing to complete a drive-through penalty despite being notified by his team on several occasions.
