Motor racing-Hamilton and Kubica score after Alfa Romeo drivers penalised

HOCKENHEIM, Germany, July 28 (Reuters) - Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton stretched his overall lead to 41 points at the German Grand Prix on Sunday after stewards imposed post-race time penalties on Alfa Romeo drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi.

The decision, which lifted Hamilton to ninth, also moved Poland’s Robert Kubica up to 10th place from 12th, meaning struggling Williams score their first point of the season.

Hamilton had finished the race in 11th place, with Raikkonen and Giovinazzi seventh and eighth. Both were handed 30 second penalties and dropped to 12th and 13th respectively. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Toby Davis)
