Official: Sainz Penalised, Loses 4th Place in Miami


Carlos Sainz receives a crucial post-race penalty, falling behind Perez to fifth place in the Miami GP.

Carlos Sainz received a 5-second post-race time penalty after the Miami Grand Prix.

The Spaniard had to report to the stewards for a collision with Oscar Piastri’s McLaren, and the FIA stewards found Sainz at fault.

They determined that Sainz was responsible because he lost the rear of his Ferrari during the overtaking maneuver.

Thus, Sainz is now ranked 5th, behind Sergio Perez, who finished about 3 seconds behind him.

The stewards also awarded a penalty point to Sainz on his Super License.

In other incidents, Kevin Magnussen received a 20-second penalty for not adhering to the Safety Car procedure. He did pit, but Haas F1 did not change the tires when serving a 10-second penalty. He is classified last following this penalty.

Lance Stroll was given a 10-second penalty for forcing Alex Albon off the track. This does not alter his final standing (17th).
