IndyCar officials placed driver Tristan Vautier on probation and fined him $10,000 on Sunday. Vautier violated rules 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.b when his car made contact with Graham Rahal's disabled car under a waving yellow flag condition during Saturday's Grand Prix of Baltimore qualifying, according to IndyCar. Rule 126.96.36.199 is defined as "engaging in reckless, careless, and/or overly aggressive actions or unsportsmanlike behavior toward other members while rule 188.8.131.52.b states "a waved yellow means reduce speed, passing not permitted, be prepared to change direction or stop, a hazard wholly or partially blocking the track." Vautier's probation runs through the remainder of the series season. He can appeal the discipline.
