Both Renault and Mercedes have been handed $50,000 fines for their parts in separate pit lane incidents during the Hungarian Grand Prix

Renault was penalised for the unsafe release of Robert Kubica, who pulled out and crashed into Adrian Sutil's Force India car.

The incident led to Sutil's retirement before Kubica's race ended eight laps later after he served a stop-go penalty.

Mercedes received the same fine of $50,000 after Nico Rosberg lost a tyre in the pit lane as a result of a loose wheel nut.
