Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and Red Bull's Mark Webber have both been given reprimands following the 2013 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix after Alonso gave Webber a lift back to the pits on the sidepod of his car after the end of the race.

Webber’s RB9 expired on the final lap and as Alonso stopped to pick him up, the two Mercedes cars behind had to take avoiding action. It's Webber's third reprimand of the year which means the Australian gets a ten-place grid penalty at the next race in Korea on October 6.

Stewards penalised Webber for entering the track on foot without the permission of marshals, while Alonso's reprimand was for actions that could have been dangerous to other drivers or persons.

In a separate incident Lotus were also reprimanded because a team personnel member was not wearing a helmet during a pit stop for Romain Grosjean.
