Prost handed grid penalty after Heidfeld clash

Nicolas Prost has been handed a 10-second penalty for causing an avoidable collision with Nick Heidfeld during the first ever Formula E race.

The Frenchman, who was leading at the time, swerved into Heidfeld at the last corner of the last lap as he attempted to overtake, causing the Venturi racer to fly into the barriers.

As a result, the stewards handed the e.dams racer a 10-place grid drop for the next round in Putrajaya, Malaysia.

Even though the stewards put the blame on Prost, he insists he wasn't at fault, saying Heidfeld was "going too fast" and "tried to dive-bomb" him.
