Daniel Ricciardo has received a 10-place grid penalty for the Bahrain Grand Prix as part of the clampdown on unsafe releases from pit stops since last year’s incident at the Nurburgring, when a TV cameraman was injured.

Under a new rule introduced this year, drivers can get both a stop and go penalty in the current race and a grid penalty for the next event.
