Vitantonio Liuzzi has been handed a 25-second penalty at the Japanese Grand Prix, meaning Spyker's Adrian Sutil has been promoted to the point-scoring positions.
Liuzzi was under investigation for having overtaken Sutil under yellow flags on lap 55 of the race, on his way to eighth place.
However the Toro Rosso driver, who had given his team their first point of the season, has been penalised and it's Spyker who have now scored their maiden point.
"For sure I think we deserved this point after all the hard work this year and we finally got it," said Sutil. "It is a great feeling, even if we didn't get it on the track.
"I think it was the right decision, there was no green flag after this yellow flag from turn one, so we were definitely right and that is why we got this point."
Spyker team principal Colin Kolles added: "We had clear evidence that Liuzzi passed Adrian under yellow flags and I am pleased that the Stewards of the Meeting agreed. The decision, which has ultimately given us our first-ever point, is a just reward for Adrian, who drove an excellent race today.
"It is also a well-deserved boost for all the team's hard work this year. Now we have this milestone ticked off, we can now focus on on moving forward and being in the points on a more regular basis. We're all looking forward to China now."
