De Vries Points Are Slashed Prior To World Championship Finale
Nyck de Vries has had his lead in the CIK-FIA Karting World Championship slashed from 30 points to 18 prior to the final round of the series at Suzuka this weekend.
Chiese Corse, the team that enters de Vries in the series, appealed the Dutchman's exclusion from Race 2 of the Belgian round.
Nyck collided with Flavio Camponeschi, who subsequently DNF'd, before going on to win the race. As such, championship points have been provisional, subject to an International Court of Appeal hearing.
The CIK-FIA have now stated:
"While the four Judges of the International Court of Appeal have confirmed the disputed decision by declaring that Nyck de Vries was responsible for the incident (collision against Flavio Camponeschi’s kart), they have nonetheless cancelled the exclusion pronounced on the day of the event and imposed instead a 10-second time penalty.
"Nyck de Vries is therefore moved back to the eighth place of the said Race. The classification of this Race 2 now shows that Jordan Lennox-Lamb is the winner ahead of Felice Tiene and Alexander Albon."
