Romain Grosjean has been handed a 20-second penalty for his collision with Jenson Button during the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Lotus driver was chasing the McLaren driver down, but as he passed heading into the chicane, he cut across and his left-rear wheel hit Button's front-wing, causing damage.

The penalty doesn't have a bearing on the final outcome however, as Grosjean finished sixth, more than 20-seconds ahead of Button in seventh.

It's Grosjean's second penalty after he was given a drive-through for leaving the track limits when overtaking Felipe Massa, which team principal Eric Boullier described as "harsh".
