Yet in a race full of penalties from the stewards, it seems that the order might not yet be confirmed after Aston Martin decided to protest the race result.
Their claim revolves around the fact that "a number of cars were not penalized for a breach of Article 33.3 [the article that deals with track limits] of the Sporting Regulations".
The stewards have noted that "a number of deleted laps were drawn to our attention after the receipt of the protest". Therefore Aston Martin have requested that Race Control "perform a reconciliation of all deleted laps with penalties applied".
It was revealed after the race that Race Control had to deal with more than 100 deleted laps during the grand prix.
Lando Norris was one of the handful of drivers that was not punished for exceeding track limits.
Alonso crossed the line within five seconds of Norris, the time that the Briton would be penalised by should a penalty be applied. Therefore if Aston Martin are successful with their appeal, the Spaniard would be promoted from sixth to fifth.
A team representative is due to visit the stewards at 6.30pm GMT with a decision expected shortly after.
