Lance Stroll gets 10 second penalty and points on licence

Lance Stroll has been given a 10 second time penalty, and two penalty points added to his licence after an incident in the Russian Grand Prix. This is due to a collision with Pierre Gasly during the race. 

Penalty for Stroll

The stewards recognised the fact that the conditions were testing at the end, and they also noted the age of his tyres. 

"Although noting the evidence of the driver of Car 18 that the conditions were extremely slippery especially as he was on old hard tyres, the Stewards determined that it was still the responsibility of the driver to ensure that having left the track due to those very same conditions, he drove appropriately taking them into account when he re-joined and turned into the next corner, considering there were two other cars in close proximity," the statement reads. 

"Competitors are reminded that they have the right to appeal certain decisions of the Stewards, in accordance with Article 15 of the FIA International Sporting Code and Chapter 4 of the FIA Judicial and Disciplinary Rules, within the applicable time limits."
