Raikkonen given penalty point for failing to line up last correctly · RaceFans

Kimi Raikkonen, Alfa Romeo, Hungaroring, 2020

Kimi Raikkonen has been given a penalty point on his licence for his error on the starting grid ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Alfa Romeo driver, who qualified 20th and last on the grid, failed to take up the correct position at the end of the formation lap before the start. The stewards noted this was corroborated by video evidence.

He was given a five-second time penalty and a penalty point on his licence, which puts him on a total of three penalty points.

The stewards also handed Nicholas Latifi a five-second time penalty during the race after ruling the team released his car into the path of Carlos Sainz Jnr’s McLaren after a pit stop.
