Pastor Maldonado and Kamui Kobayashi were fined after incidents during the British Grand Prix.
Maldonado was handed a ?óÔÇÜ?¼10,000 fine and a reprimand for his collision with Sergio Perez during the race. Perez retired following the collision at Brooklands.
The stewards’ decision stated: “In view of the serious nature of the incident the stewards have decided under Article 18.1 to apply two penalties.”
Kobayashi received a ?óÔÇÜ?¼25,000 fine for an unsafe pit stop after hitting several members of his pit crew.
“The accident at the pit stop was my fault and I want to apologise to the team,” said Kobayashi.
“Of course I had to push hard for points, but without doubt I braked too late in the pit lane.
“The front wheels locked, I couldn?óÔé¼Ôäót control the car, and this is how I overshot the pit box. I am terribly sorry this happened, and I hope the three mechanics I hit get well soon.”
The team confirmed on Twitter one mechanic had an injured thumb and the other suffered cuts and bruises to his left leg.
