Fernando Alonso, Kevin Magnussen and Daniel Ricciardo have all been handed penalties for incidents that took place in yesterday’s Miami Grand Prix.
The inaugural Miami Grand Prix held at the Miami International Autodrome saw several incidents in the second half of the race. Lando Norris collided with Pierre Gasly on the exit of Turn 8, putting both into retirement, whilst Sebastian Vettel tangled with his countryman Mick Schumacher at Turn 1, ending Vettel's race and Schumacher's chances of securing his first Formula 1 points.
Before his race-ending incident with Norris, Gasly had made contact with Alonso into Turn 1 after the Spaniard hit the back of the Alpha Tauri as the pair exited the corner. The stewards found Alonso responsible for the collision, and he was handed a five-second time penalty moving him from eighth to ninth in the initial results.
Alonso fell out of the points entirely after receiving another five-second time penalty for leaving the track at Turn 14 and gaining an advantage.
Ricciardo, meanwhile, was found to have gained an advantage by leaving the track at Turn 12 when battling Magnussen, and therefore he too received a five-second time penalty. Meanwhile, Magnussen ended his miserable afternoon’s work by making contact with Lance Stroll on the run down to Turn 11, with the stewards finding the Dane guilty of causing a collision and giving him a five-second time penalty for his troubles.
As a result of his second penalty, Alonso falls to 11th in the final standings promoting Alex Albon to ninth and Stroll to tenth, whilst Ricciardo is demoted to 13th. Magnussen remains in 16th.
All three drivers also had penalty points to their superlicenses, with Ricciardo picking up one point taking his total up to two, whilst Magnussen received two points for the collision. Alonso was given one penalty point for the incident, bringing his total to three.
