Multiple drivers have received penalties for the on-track actions this season

F1 2022: Drivers and their penalty points after Hungarian GP

Penalty points are awarded to F1 drivers for their transgressions on the track like causing an incident, dangerously blocking another competitor, or driving in an unsafe manner in the pitlane. Each transgression based on the severity has different F1 penalty points attached to them, and once a driver accumulates 12 penalty points within 12 months, he faces a suspension for one race. The penalty points expire 12 months after they are awarded to the driver.

Let's take a look at where each driver stands in terms of penalty points on the current grid after the 2022 F1 Hungarian GP.
