Mattias Ekstrom has been handed a three-place grid penalty for Sunday’s DTM race at the Moscow Raceway.

The Swede clashed with BMW’s Timo Glock while battling for fourth position during Saturday’s opening race.

Ekstrom attempted a pass on the inside of the German into Turn 7, colliding with Glock and sending both cars spearing into the barriers, prompting a second safety car of the race.

While the pair were both eliminated from the race, Ekstrom’s title rival Pascal Wehrlein  claimed a second win of the season to pull eight points clear at the head of the championship standings.
