Heidfeld unlikely to cop ten-place penalty

Sun, 2 July 2006, 02:07

Despite running out of power in qualifying, BMW-Sauber’s Nick Heidfeld told reporters at Indianapolis that he does not expect to lose ten places on the race grid.

”I don’t know why the car stopped,” said the German, ”but it didn’t feel like an engine problem.” Team principal Mario Theissen speculated that the stoppage ‘seems’ to have been due to an electronic fault.

Because Heidfeld had made the cut for Saturday’s final ‘shootout’ for pole position, then, he will start the US grand prix from tenth if he does not need to take an unscheduled engine change penalty.
