The United States Grand Prix was a pretty hectic one – plenty of lead changes, Max Verstappen being pushed right to the end, and four different cars finishing in the top four positions.
What it didn't see, though, was any drivers picking up penalty points on their licenses. While George Russell was pinged in qualifying for impeding (and got a three-place grid penalty), that infringement doesn't bring any penalty points with it.
Nor, indeed, do time penalties for repeatedly exceeding track limits – which is why Alex Albon had five seconds added to his race time, but no points added to his license.
