    It gained an extra point purely because Mclaren were actually looking competitive for a change

    4 way onboard of the last lap between Norris, Ricciardo, Raikkonen and Hulkenberg.

    Norris, Ricciardo, and Raikkonen and team representatives were all called to see the stewards at 17:45.

    The overtaking Raikkonen outside the track limits is ridiculous, how on earth is he going to explain that one? Easy 5 second penalty there. He literally chose to go there from behind, wasn't pushed there or anything.

    Norris also looks like he got oversteer trying to avoid Ricciardo pushing him into the rough surface which effectively acted like a brake and gave everyone else massive overspeed. But the Raikkonen overtake is so ridiculous, probably don't even need to look into this one.

    How could you forget? It was the amount of painted lines, it probably confused him :p

    Ricciardo given 5 second penalty for forcing another car off the track by rejoining track unsafely.

    Also another 5 second penalty for going off track and gaining a lasting advantage by passing a car.

    Puts him down to 11th as finishing position.

    Really!?

    (Found it on twitter)

    FIA website where they publish all the formal documents, and full stewards decisions.

    Dull race. Really feel for Norris.

    But that driving at the end by Ricciardo was all kinds of dirty and allowed 2 other cars to pass Norris as well.

    One off track limits moment wasnt enough for Ricciardo - he had to have 3 just to make sure. Lol :p

    Ricciardo deserved those penalties, especially the 2nd one.

    Ricciardo knew he was off, I don't understand why he didn't just stay off the track and slot in behind Norris again. He must have known that he wasn't gonna be able to argue that he made the corner. Unlike Vettel he was in control of his car as well, so didn't have that excuse.

    Vettel in Canada did have control when he got back to the track so fia are being consistent with there punishment with Ricciardo
