Stroll also handed penalty after opening lap crash in Hungary

Valtteri Bottas isn't the only driver to pick up a grid penalty after the Hungarian GP with Aston Martin's Lance Stroll joining him.

Lance Stroll has been handed a five-place grid penalty after causing a collision on the opening lap of the Hungarian GP. It was tricky start for all drivers as rain fell down at the Hungaroring, and the Canadian tried his best to take advantage of the conditions. However things didn't work out for Stroll as he tried to squeeze past Ferrari's Charles Leclerc, taking both drivers out of the race. As a result the Aston Martin driver has been handed a five-place grid penalty that will be served when the F1 season resumes in Belgium at the end of the month. Along with the grid penalty Stroll has also been handed two penalty points, which brings his total to six over the last 12 months.
