Marcus Ericsson has been handed two penalty points for his false start at the Austrian Grand Prix.
Ericsson jumped the start and was given a drive through penalty, along with a further two points on his licence.
His sanction brings his running total to five, having copped three points at last year's Italian Grand Prix.
A driver will receive a one-race suspension if they collect 12 points within the space of a year.
Ericsson finished the Austrian Grand Prix down in 13th position after being further hampered by a temporary loss of power.
"It began at the start with me being to eager and jumping the start," he said. "On lap one I went over debris, which destroyed both my front and rear wing.
"I had an early first pit stop to get a new front wing, but we saw on the data that my pace was compromised. Furthermore, I had an electronic issue, so the car switched off twice, which forced me to restart it again."
