Kevin Magnussen is on the verge of a Formula 1 race ban after being handed two further penalty points after the Miami Grand Prix.

The Haas driver made contact with Logan Sargeant at Turn 2 on Lap 28, tipping the Williams into the barrier, triggering the safety car that helped Lando Norris to win.

Battling for position, Sargeant moved across to take the racing line at Turn 2, but Magnussen attempted to stick his car up the inside of the American.

Both were summoned for the incident, with the stewards ultimately handing Magnussen two penalty points for the collision, after deeming him "wholly to blame for the collision."

It moves him onto 10 penalty points for the 12-month period, after he picked up three points for his driving in the sprint race after a fierce battle with Lewis Hamilton over eighth place.

In total, the Dane picked up 65 seconds worth of penalties across the weekend to go with the five penalty points.
