At the root is the incident between Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso. Haas, who is not Stroll’s team by the way, filed a complaint after the race, alleging that Alonso drove an unsafe car because he no longer had a side mirror after the crash.
It gave Alonso a time penalty of 30 seconds, dropping him from 7th place to 15th place and thus not scoring any points.
Alpine appealed the penalty, alleging Haas’ complaint was filed too late and the marshals failed to wave the required black-and-orange flag during the race.
Those arguments were able to convince the FIA and therefore the penalty was canceled. Fernando Alonso thus still gets the 6 World Cup points for his 7th place, putting him in the standings at 71 points. With the constructors, Alpine takes a little more distance from number 5 McLaren.
