Back, Back, Back Goes Magnussen

By PaddockTalk.com Staff Writers

Post-race action had the Stewards staying for a bit to sort out the wild final laps fighting for fifth place. After having received a report from the Race Director, the Stewards decided that McLaren driver Kevin Magnussen forced car 14 (Fernando Alonso - Ferrari) off the track between turns 4 and 5.

The offence was a breach of articles 16.1 and 20.4 of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations and the decision was a drive-through penalty for Magnussen. Since the race was ended, the Stewards added a 20 second penalty in accordance of Article 16.3.

Magnussen had two penalty points awarded, and now has four points total for the 12 month period.

The Stewards commented saying, "The driver of car 20 was defending his position on the straight between turns 4 and 5, a significant portion of  car 14 was alongside car 20. The driver of car 20 did not leave enough space for car 14 and forced the car off the track."

As a result, the McLaren driver went backwards from a sixth place finish to a final position of 12th.
