Max Verstappen has been hit with a further sanction by Austrian Grand Prix stewards for the collision with Lando Norris. 

For the Lap 64 contact that put Norris out of the race and demoted Verstappen to fifth after punctures, the stewards handed the world champion a 10-second time penalty.

It did not drop him from fifth however, as he was well ahead of the Haas of Nico Hulkenberg.

However, the stewards have also decided to award Verstappen two penalty points on his super-licence, bringing his total for the 12 month period to four, with 12 needed for ban.
