Lewis Hamilton, McLaren, Monaco, 2011
Hamilton received two of his four penalties in a single race

The F1 Fanatic statistics pages have been revised and expanded with the aim of producing the most comprehensive data on the 2011 season.

Among the new additions is a breakdown of all the penalties handed to drivers during 2011.

Lewis Hamilton has the most so far with four, two of which were handed down during the Monaco Grand Prix which led to his famous outburst afterwards.

He’s not the only driver to pick up two penalties in one race, however: Sergio Perez did likewise at the Chinese Grand Prix.

Of the 22 penalties handed down, six have gone to the two McLaren drivers.

Drive-through penalties remain the preferred punishment of the stewards, with time penalties taking their place if they are handed down late in the race.

Stop-go penalties were used instead at Silverstone due to the short length of the new pit lane. Sebastien Buemi is the only driver to receive a stop-go penalty at another track after breaking the pit lane speed limit by 20kph during the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Here are all the drivers who have received race penalties during 2011:

Driver Total Drive-through Stop-go Post-race Time added
Lewis Hamilton 4 2 0 2 40
Sergio Perez 3 3 0 0 0
Jenson Button 2 2 0 0 0
Pastor Maldonado 2 2 0 0 0
Paul di Resta 2 2 0 0 0
Rubens Barrichello 1 1 0 0 0
Adrian Sutil 1 1 0 0 0
Vitantonio Liuzzi 1 1 0 0 0
Jerome D’Ambrosio 1 1 0 0 0
Michael Schumacher 1 0 1 0 0
Kamui Kobayashi 1 0 1 0 0
Sebastien Buemi 1 0 1 0 0
