If there already is a thread about this, sorry.
Anyway, this thread is as the title reads, pointless penalties.
Over the years I am sure there have been many stupid or pointless penalties.
The one penalty that really came to mind recently was the post race 20 second penalty handed to Romain Grosjean in Hungary. However, despite the 20 second penalty, he retains 6th place because he crossed the line with 21 seconds in pocket! Can you think of anymore or have an opinion on penalties which have been given which actually have no effect on the result of the driver and are therefore no penalty to the driver.
