9 cars under investigation after Valencia raceUPDATE (GMM) The results of Sunday's European grand prix are largely unchanged after a post-race stewards enquiry.
Nine drivers were summoned to the FIA officials in Valencia, accused of driving too quickly under safety car conditions.
Less than three hours after the checkered flag, all of them were found guilty and handed 5 second time penalties.
Jenson Button, Rubens Barrichello, Robert Kubica and Adrian Sutil finished in third through sixth, but their penalties did not affect those placings.
Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, however, moves past the penalized Sebastien Buemi for eighth place, while Nico Rosberg - 12th at the flag - moves ahead of both Pedro de la Rosa and Vitaly Petrov.
The German therefore takes the final point from Sauber's de la Rosa, while Vitantonio Liuzzi drops from the non-scoring 13th to 16th.
06/27/10 Jenson Button and eight other drivers are under investigation following the European Grand Prix. Button along with Nico Hülkenberg, Rubens Barrichello, Robert Kubica, Vitaly Petrov, Adrian Sutil, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Sebastien Buemi and Pedro de la Rosa may be handed penalties because of their safety car in-lap time.
The safety car was deployed after Mark Webber and Heikki Kovalainen collided on lap 14.
Button finished third in the original classification, Barrichello fourth, Kubica fifth, Sutil sixth, Buemi eighth, de la Rosa tenth, Petrov 11th, Liuzzi 13th and Hülkenberg did not finish.
