Four Formula 1 drivers have been given reprimands for failing to stay above the minimum lap time set by the FIA ECU during qualifying in Hungary.
The rules state that "drivers must stay below the maximum time set by the FIA between the safety car line after the pit exit and safety car line before the pit entry."
The rule was introduced earlier this year in order to avoid drivers going too slowly back to the pits.
Renault's Vitaly Petrov, HRT's Sakon Yamamoto, Virgin's Timo Glock and team-mate Lucas di Grassi have been reprimanded for driving too slowly following the end of the qualifying segments.
The maximum time in Hungary was one minute and 26 seconds.
