Stewards in Belgium have handed Toyota’s Timo Glock a 25-second time penalty for overtaking under yellow flags during Sunday’s race. The ruling means Glock, who had finished in eighth, has been reclassified in ninth.

Glock is understood to have passed Red Bull’s Mark Webber during the final moments of the Belgian Grand Prix, even though yellow flags were being waved following Kimi Raikkonen’s accident in the Ferrari.

As a result of the penalty Webber is promoted to eighth in the Spa results and takes the point.
