LE CASTELLET, France, June 23 (Reuters) - Indian Formula Two driver Mahaveer Raghunathan has been banned for a race after collecting nine penalty points in a single afternoon at the French Grand Prix.

The 20-year-old, who competes under a Dutch licence, infringed three virtual safety car procedures in Saturday's race at le Castellet and was handed three points for each infringement.

Added to the points he already had, Raghunathan reached the 12 point limit that triggers an automatic ban, meaning the Chennai-born driver will miss next weekend's round in Austria.
