Both USA and Brazil have received 25 second penalties following the latest round of A1GP at Taupo, New Zealand.
Marco Andretti finished eighth for USA in the feature race, but was dropped down to 11th place when he was judged to have crossed the white line marking out the pit exit.
As such, he drops behind Italy, South Africs and Malaysia, who all move up a spot to gain an extra point.
Brazil's Felipe Guimaraes, meanwhile, was dropped from 12th to 15th after being punished for causing an avoidable accident. He collided with Monaco's Clivio Piccione.
