16.3 The stewards may impose any one of the penalties below on any driver involved in an Incident :
a) A drive-through penalty. The driver must enter the pit lane and re-join the race without stopping.

the end of a race, Article 16.4b) below will not apply and 20 seconds will be added to the elapsed race time
of the driver concerned in the case of a) above and 30 seconds in the case of b).
lolz @reprimand ... damn.. how the hell can it be considered a penalty??.. thats controversy right there.. i wouldn't mind being reprimanded if i keep on winning by cheating ..
17.1 Protests shall be made in accordance with the Code and accompanied by a fee of €2000.

36.3 During Q1, any driver whose best qualifying lap exceeds 107% of the fastest time set during that session will not be allowed to take part in the race. Under exceptional circumstances however, which may include setting a suitable lap time in a free practice session, the stewards may permit the car to start the race. Should there be more than one driver accepted in this manner, the grid order will be determined by the stewards.
return of 107% rule.. thats good..
