Mercedes' Robert Wickens and BMW's Bruno Spengler have both been hit with post-race penalties for their part in two separate on-track incidents at Sunday's Hockenheim DTM finale.

Wickens was affected most by the steward's post-race ruling as a 30 second time penalty for being judged to be at fault in an incident involving BMW's Augusto Farfus, dropped the Canadian to 17th in the final classification.

Subsequently the Norisring winner has now fallen from ninth in the overall standings to twelfth; such is the close proximity of point's midway down the table.

Unlike Wickens, Spengler's penalty for causing a collision with Daniel Juncadella didn't cost the BMW driver any points but the 2012 champion has been ordered to conduct three hours of charitable work - in consultation with DMSB - for his unsporting behaviour.
