Kimi Raikkonen has been given a penalty point on his licence for his error on the starting grid ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix.
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.
Raikkonen said he realised he had lined up in the wrong position but wasn’t able to correct it before the race started.
“The grid was a bit slippery,” he said. “I went a bit too long into the box and I didn’t have the time to reverse.”
“Unfortunately starting where we did meant we had a very difficult job ahead of us,” he added. “We did what we could but it wasn’t enough for points. Our pace wasn’t too bad, I made up a few places at the start but the penalty put me back at the bottom.”
