Whilst it's unlikely to make much of a difference to their starting positions, both Jules Bianchi and Charles Pic have been hit with ten-place grid penalties for the Japanese Grand Prix.
The pair were both reprimanded earlier in the Korean race weekend -Bianchi for blocking Paul di Resta during qualifying and Charles Pic for missing the weighbridge.
That gave the Caterham and Marussia driver two reprimands each.
Following the race, the stewards handed down reprimands to the pair for failing to slow under yellow flags and therefore means both drivers have collected three warnings and will face starting ten places lower than they qualify at the next race.
Max Chilton and Giedo van der Garde also received their first reprimands of the season for speeding behind the safety car.
