The result of the United States Grand Prix has been revised following the reversal of Fernando Alonso's post-race penalty.

Following the event in Austin, Alonso was handed a 30-second time penalty after a protest from Haas over the damage to the Spaniard's car in the aftermath of a collision with Lance Stroll.

As a result, the stewards deemed that Alonso's car had not been in a safe condition during the race, dropping him down from the points-paying position of P7 to P15.

However, on Thursday 27 October ahead of the upcoming Mexican Grand Prix, a further stewards' hearing was held after Alpine argued that Haas had submitted their protest after the given deadline.

Alpine's right to review appeal resulted in Alonso's penalty being overturned and his original P7 result being reinstated.

Alonso's return to the top 10 means that Sebastian Vettel has now been pushed down to P8, while Kevin Magnussen falls to P9 and Yuki Tsunoda moves to P10.

This also causes Alonso's teammate Esteban Ocon to drop out of the points by being demoted from P10 to P11, though this will perhaps not cause Alpine too much concern, with Alonso's seventh place giving them six points.
