Five-second penalty drops Alonso to 17th in penultimate race | 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix

Fernando Alonso has been relegated to 17th place in the Brazilian Grand Prix after receiving a five-second time penalty.
His team mate Stoffel Vandoorne was also given the same penalty after the race, falling from 14th to 15th behind Esteban Ocon.
Fernando Alonso was judged to have taken too long to respond to blue flags which “were shown for a significant number of corners”.
The stewards ruled Ocon took too long to let Romain Grosjean past while he was racing with Lance stroll.
“Vandoorne failed to let car eight [Grosjean] by at the first opportunity, although shown the blue flags for a significant number of corners,” they noted.
