Perez given penalty point for track limits violation | 2019 French Grand Prix

Sergio Perez has been given a penalty point in addition to his five-second time penalty for passing cars by going off the track at turn three.
The stewards ruled Perez compiled with the instructions on how to rejoin the track after going off at the corner, but did not observe the requirement not to gain positions from other cars.
“Although Perez followed the procedure in the race director’s notes, he clearly gained positions when he re-joined the track at turn five and retained this advantage,” the stewards noted.
Perez now has a total of four penalty points on his licence.
