The FIA stewards have upheld the protest from Aston Martin of the final race result of the Austrian Grand Prix.

A post-race examination of deleted lap times revealed that several drivers escaped being penalised, according to the stewards.

The stewards verdict read: "An examination of the list of deleted lap times provided to the Stewards by Race Control, revealed that a number of track limit infringements had not previously been referred to the Stewards for potential penalty.

"It was determined that some of these infringements warranted a penalty that was not previously applied when the Provisional Classification was published."

"These penalties will be reflected in the final classification."
