* Mark Webber (Red Bull Racing) Drop of five grid positions for a gearbox replacement
* Michael Schumacher (Mercedes AMG Petronas) got a € 2500 fine in P2. Did not stay to the right of the bollard on the left in the Pit entry. He did not enter the Pit Lane via the Pit Entry as defined in the Race Director’s Notes to Team Managers. However as no other cars were in the vicinity, the offence is not regarded as dangerous and it did not impede another competitor.
* Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull Racing) gets  € 10000 fine in P3. The driver performed a practice start in the Pit Lane. In mitigation of the penalty is the fact that the team and driver immediately realised their error and reported it to the Race Director. The Team also reported that the “Lollypop Man” was performing this role for the first time
* Pastor Maldonado (Williams F1) gets a 3 places penalty drop on the grid. The driver was warned by his team not to "hold up" Nico Hülkenberg who was behind him, yet he clearly did impede. However as Car 12 continued into Q2 a more severe penalty was not considered appropriate.
* Nico Rosberg (Mercedes AMG Petronas) Drop of five grid positions for a gearbox replacement
