The issue of a non-driving reprimand means the Frenchman keeps his shock victory during a wet-dry race at the Hungaroring, having led from start to finish and fended off a relentless challenge from Sebastian Vettel.

Ocon was summoned to see the stewards after his win for failing to park his Alpine in parc ferme, instead leaving it at the end of the pit lane.

"During the hearing Ocon explained that he missed the pit entry and figured that the best place to stop would be close to the pit exit," the stewards wrote.

"He apologised and confirmed to be more careful next time. The Stewards do not assess this as a breach of parc ferme regulations.

"Ocon did not follow the race director's instructions however and therefore a penalty as stated above is appropriate.”

Vettel, Carlos Sainz, Valtteri Bottas and Lance Stroll were also handed reprimands over a breach of the pre-race procedure.
