Sebastian Vettel will race at the next three grands prix with the threat of a race ban hanging over him.
Vettel endured a miserable Italian Grand Prix, spinning out of fourth place at the Ascari Chicane and then making contact with Lance Stroll in a clumsy re-entry to the circuit.
A 10-second stop-go penalty did further damage to Vettel's race and he eventually finished 13th on an otherwise jubilant day for Ferrari, as Charles Leclerc held off both Mercedes drivers to secure victory.
As well as his in-race penalty, Vettel also had three penalty points added to his superlicence, taking his tally over the past 12 months to nine.
Vettel is not due to lose penalty points on his licence until October 19, after the Japanese Grand Prix.
If Vettel is guilty of another serious offence in Singapore, Russia or Japan, it could well see him banned for the subsequent event.
