The SportsXchange

IndyCar officials placed driver Tristan Vautier on probation and fined him $10,000 on Sunday.

Vautier violated rules 9.3.1.1 and 7.2.2.1.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 9.3.1.1 is defined as "engaging in reckless, careless, and/or overly aggressive actions or unsportsmanlike behavior toward other members while rule 7.2.2.1.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.
