Hamilton given three-place grid penalty for impeding Raikkonen | 2019 Austrian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton has been given a three-place grid penalty for the Austrian Grand Prix after the stewards ruled he impended Kimi Raikkonen.
After speaking to both drivers and reviewing video of the incident the stewards ruled Hamilton “unnecessarily impeded car 7 [Raikkonen] at turn three”.
“Car 44 [Hamilton] had just come out of the pits and was informed of the cars approaching, including car seven.”
The penalty promotes Max Verstappen to second on the grid for the race alongside pole winner Charles Leclerc.
In a social media post Hamilton said he “totally deserved the penalty today and have no problem accepting it”.
