Gryazin fined for extinguishing system not being in an operating place after SS5

The stewards of Rally Sweden gave to Nikolay Gryazin a fine for breaching the sporting regulations by FIA.

More specifically, Gryazin's Skoda was found with the control unit of the extinguishing system not in an operating position during routine checks at the Stop Control zone at the end of Stage 5. The extinguishing system is very important to the crews for safety reasons and FIA has introduced many safety measures in the view of protecting the lives of the drivers and the co-drivers after what happened to Romain Grosjean at Bahrain Grand Prix three years ago. For this reason, the stewards of Rally Sweden fined Gryazin for this breach and he has to pay 1.000€ within 48 hours.
