Maldonado swerved into the side of Perez to cause a deliberate crash
Pastor Maldonado has been docked 10 places on the grid for the Monaco Grand Prix.
The newest F1 race winner caused a deliberate crash in Saturday practice with Sergio Perez.
As Perez moved off the racing line to allow Pastor past, the Williams driver swerved and slammed into the side of the Sauber, causing damage to both cars. Maldonado crashed several corners later.
After a similar incident in Spa last year with Lewis Hamilton, the stewards have again punished Pastor for another needless crash.
This all but certainly rules him out of challenging for the win on Sunday.
