Fernando Alonso was given a 20-second time penalty in the Australian Grand Prix, dropping him from sixth place across the line to an official eighth. He was also awarded three penalty points on his licence.

The stewards imposed this penalty for an incident on the penultimate lap of the race, on the approach to Turn 6 when Alonso’s Aston Martin was being closely followed by the Mercedes of George Russell.
