Kimi Raikkonen has received a 20-second post-race time penalty following his incident with former teammate Sebastian Vettel on the final lap of the Austrian Grand Prix.
Heading into the final lap, Raikkonen and Vettel were right on the tail of George Russell for P11.
Down into T4, Raikkonen locked up and it opened the door for Vettel to make his move. However, the Finn ended up hitting the German and they both ended up off the circuit.
The stewards decided the 2007 World Champion was in the wrong and was given a big penalty. Two points were also added to his licence.
The stewards’ document said: "Exiting turn five, Raikkonen closed the door on Vettel, which caused a collision taking both cars off the track."
"It was not an easy race today, which ended with a trip through the gravel because of the misunderstanding with Kimi [Räikkönen]. I guess he just did not see me in front of him. The first I knew about it was the contact I felt on the left rear. I had made a good exit out of Turn Four and was pulling ahead of Kimi on the right as we approached Turn Five. I do not think there was any intention from Kimi,'' Vettel said about the incident.
Raikkonen commented: [I] had the contact with Seb. We came together and that was it, in the end it didn't change the end result as we would have both fallen a bit short of the points."
Despite the penalty, Raikkonen initially stayed in P16 as Vettel pitted with damage and the Haas of Mick Schumacher was too far behind.
The incident between the Alfa Romeo and the Aston Martin brought out double-yellow flags on the final lap and multiple drivers were investigated post-race for failing to slow sufficiently.
Sainz, Perez, Ricciardo, Leclerc, Gasly and Giovinazzi were cleared of any wrongdoing. However, Mazepin and Latifi didn’t get so lucky.
Mazepin and Latifi both received 30-second penalties as they "did not slow down sufficiently for the double-waved and yellow sector". The Russian and Canadian got three points added to their licences.
Latifi, who had finished 15th, drops a place to Raikkonen in spite of the Finn’s penalty.
