Stewards penalise Trulli and Vettel

As anticipated, Jarno Trulli has been stripped of his third place podium finish in today's Australian Grand Prix when it was ruled that he overtook Lewis Hamilton under the safety car.

A 25 second time penalty, drops him from the podium - and out of the points - promoting Lewis Hamilton  to third and Sebastien Bourdais into the final points position.

Sebastian Vettel was penalised for his coming together with Kubica and for failing to take his damaged car off track when requested - he will be demoted ten places on the Sepang grid and receives a $50,000 fine.
