Alonso gets first point in Imola after Räikkönen’s time penalty, Lance Stroll has to go back

Fernando Alonso has his first World Cup point in his second period in Formula 1. The 39-year-old Spaniard finished eleventh in the Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna on Sunday, outside the points. A few hours after the tumultuous race, however, the race management decided to give the ninth-finished Kimi Räikkönen a time penalty of 30 seconds.

The Finn therefore fell out of the top ten. The Frenchman Esteban Ocon (Alpine) moved from tenth to ninth place in the results, his teammate Alonso from eleventh to tenth. The two-time world champion in Formula 1 (2005 and 2006) thus took his first point. At the opening race three weeks ago in Bahrain, Alonso retired.

41-year-old Räikkönen (Alfa Romeo) was given a time penalty for the spin he made prior to the restart of the race. The Finn then did not act according to the regulations and that cost him two points for the World Cup.

Not much later, Lance Stroll was given a five-second time penalty, forcing the Aston Martin driver to give up his seventh place to AlphaTauri’s Frenchman Pierre Gasly. Stroll thus ends in eighth place in Imola.
