McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso have had 20 seconds added to their race times by the Malaysian stewards following their clash during the Sepang event.

Hamilton was penalised for making more than one change of direction as he tried to defend his position from Alonso. The Spaniard, meanwhile, received the same penalty for causing a collision with the British driver during the fight.

Hamilton's penalty promotes Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi to seventh in the race results and drops the McLaren driver to eighth. Alonso retains his sixth-place finish.
