Mark Webber given post-race penalty

Mark Webber has been given a post-race penalty for an illegal overtake, after Schumacher was also given a 10-place grid penalty for Suzuka.

Mark Webber overtook Kamui Kobayashi in the closing stages of the race and the stewards decided that going off track benefited the overtake. Webber was also reprimanded yesterday (Saturday) after leaving the track twice during his in-lap in Q3.Webber is now 11th.

Webber’s team-mate, Sebastian Vettel was investigated for nearly two hours by stewards regarding his close call with Jenson Button, but the stewards decided that he was not to blame for the incident.
