Post-race time penalties for a number of drivers have affected the finishing order for race one at Imola, with two drivers losing their points finishes as a result.

Stewards decided to look into possible track limit offences after the conclusion of race one at the Italian circuit, and both Nick Cassidy and Mikkel Jensen were the biggest losers.

Cassidy had finished fourth but his twenty-second penalty saw the Prema Powerteam driver relegated to tenth, while the same penalty for Mücke Motorsport driver Jensen meant he lost his tenth place and was ultimately classified eleventh.

George Russell now moves up to fourth for Hitech GP ahead of Anthoine Hubert of Van Amersfoort Racing, while Guanyu Zhou inherits sixth for Motopark.

Ralf Aron of Prema Powerteam now moves up to seventh ahead of Ben Barnicoat of Hitech GP, while Harrison Newey inherits two places to move into ninth for Van Amersfoort Racing ahead of Cassidy.

As well as Cassidy and Jensen, penalties were also handed to Maximilian Günther, Nikita Mazepin, Wing Chung Chang and Callum Ilott, all of whom finished outside the top ten.
