Maldonado and Alguersuari handed time penalties 13 Nov 2011
Williams Pastor Maldonado and Toro Rossos Jaime Alguersuari have been given post-race time penalties by the Abu Dhabi stewards. Both were punished for ignoring blue flags during Sundays Grand Prix at Yas Marina.
Alguersuari was handed a drive-through penalty, but as it was awarded after the race the Spaniard instead had 20 seconds added to his race time.
Maldonado, meanwhile, had already received a drive-through penalty for ignoring blue flags earlier in the race and so was given a stop-go penalty for his second offence. As it too was awarded post-race, it was converted into 30 seconds added to the Venezuelans race time.
Maldonados and Alguersuaris 14th and 15th place finishes are unaffected by the penalties.
