F1 penalty points: Max Verstappen on top as Alonso punished

Max Verstappen remains at the top of the F1 penalty points table after the Canadian Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver and Montreal winner continued to keep his nose clean this season after picking up seven points in the second half of his championship-winning campaign last term.

However, the reigning champion must still wait until September before the first points drop off his licence.

Although a number of drivers picked up time penalties and fines for failing to follow the race director's notes and pit lane speeding in Canada, only Fernando Alonso added to his super licence points total.

The Spaniard forced the stewards to act in the closing stages of Sunday's race as he was seen weaving while attempting to defend his seventh place from Valtteri Bottas.

Despite crossing the line in this position, Alonso was handed a single point and a five-second penalty, dropping him to ninth.

Alongside time penalties, driving infringements also carry penalty points to ensure driving standards are maintained.

These points expire after 12 months have elapsed, but will result in a race ban should 12 points be accrued during this period.

GPFans has compiled a list of the points currently accrued by drivers and when they will expire. This article will be updated throughout the year.
