I believe that there should be a time penalty applied to both cars. I think the car which allowed the pass to happen should receive the equivalent of a drive-through penalty, rounded UP to the nearest 5 seconds (so estimated time of 31 seconds becomes 35 sec penalty). I think it would be fair for the car which gains an advantage to be penalised by 50% more rounded to the next full second (in this case 35 + 17.5 = 52.5 giving a 53 second penalty).

This would discourage the practice as the team could very well have both drivers drop off the podium in a close race.
