Nico Hulkenberg, Sergio Perez and Pastor Maldonado have all been handed penalty points for transgressions during the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The Force India pair were handed two penalty points each for incidents with Daniil Kvyat and Romain Grosjean respectively, for which they were also given a 10 second time drop in the race.

It is Hulkenberg's first penalty points, while Perez now has four, to add to his two he accrued when he hit Adrian Sutil in the United States last year.

Pastor Maldonado was given three penalty points as he did not stay above the minimum time set by the FIA ECU when following the safety car.

Maldonado has now accumulated eight points across the past 12 months - a driver will be banned for one event if they rack up 12 points.
