Aston Martin has been fined €300 after both Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll were found guilty of speeding in the pit lane during Austrian Grand Prix practice.

Canadian Stroll earned the heftier €200 fine having been clocked by sensors at 81.3kph, with the speed limit set at 80kph at the Red Bull Ring.

Teammate Alonso only breached the limit by 0.9kph and therefore only earned Aston Martin a €100 fine.

The fine made the Silverstone-based outfit the second team to be punished following the only practice session of the weekend in Styria, with Lewis Hamilton earning Mercedes a financial penalty earlier in the hour's running.

Drivers are faced with qualifying later in the day, with F1's Sprint format taking precedent on Saturday, before normal service is resumed with the Grand Prix on Sunday.
