Force India's Paul di Resta is reprimanded by the stewards at the Italian Grand Prix for crashing into the back of Romain Grosjean's Lotus.

Paul di Resta has been handed a reprimand by the stewards for causing a crash on the first lap of the Italian Grand Prix.

The Force India driver collided with the rear of Romain Grosjean's Lotus, damaging his front wing and ending his race.

The Scot told Autosport: "I didn't have vision of the apex of turn four, I think there were a few passing manoeuvres going on in front.

"Everything slowed and I tried to take avoiding action but unfortunately locked a wheel. I tried to go for the gap between them but unfortunately tore the front end off the car.

"Not the best but with everything that happened yesterday with the brake failure, we'll try to forget about the weekend."

Di Resta has not completed the last three Grand Prix.
