April 10, 2011

Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso have both been given 20-second time penalties after a collision in today’s Malaysian race. This means Hamilton goes from 7th to 8th and Alonso stays 6th. Hamilton gained this penalty for making more than one defending move, and Alonso’s penalty was for causing the collision in the first place. The collision occurred when Alonso was trying to pass Hamilton on turn 3, but hit the back of the McLaren which broke his front wing.
