F1: Sirotkin, Magnussen land Brazil GP qualifying reprimands

Sergey Sirotkin and Kevin Magnussen have both been handed reprimands for driving too slowly during in laps in separate qualifying incidents.
Sirotkin was picked up for the offence in the closing minutes of Q1, while Magnussen had the same offence midway through Q2.
Following individual FIA Stewards’ hearings, both drivers were handed reprimands – Sirotkin’s first of the season and Magnussen’s second – with the Russian driver blaming the mistake on a setup issue.
Both drivers retain their original qualifying positions, with Magnussen promoted to 10th place by Daniel Ricciardo’s power unit penalty while Sirotkin moves up to 14th place following Esteban Ocon’s gearbox penalty.
