Netherlands have had a 42-second penalty added onto their sprint race result to drop them from eighth position down to last.

Jeroen Bleekemolen was judged to have jumped the start of the race by stewards, the 42-second penalty calculated according to the time he would have probably lost had he taken the standard drive-through penalty.

Unusually occurring at the end of the race, stewards insist they wanted to be sure before they made any kind of decision.

It means, Ireland, Italy and Malaysia move up further into points positions, into eighth, ninth and tenth.
