Nico Hulkenberg and Sebastian Vettel have been handed reprimands for crossing the white line at the entry to the pits during third practice at the Red Bull Ring.

Drivers must stay to the white line which begins on the approach to Turn 8, all the way through until they arrive in the pit lane.

Both Hulkenberg and Vettel strayed outside of the white line after being caught out by the wet conditions as they were making their way back to the pit lane.

Red Bull driver Daniil Kvyat received the same penalty after he did not adhere to the rules during Friday practice.

It is the first reprimands of the season for both drivers, with a five place grid penalty following if they pick up three reprimands.
